Real Madrid sporting director Predrag Mijatovic has revealed the Spanish champions have already "closed deals" for some new summer signings, but insists no-one will be presented before the team´s new coach.

Madrid are currently without a manager following Thursday´s dismissal of title-winning coach Fabio Capello, but reports in Spain suggest Getafe boss Bernd Schuster will be named in the near future.

"First we have to present the coach, while respecting the one who just left and the one who is coming in. Then the players will arrive," said Mijatovic on Saturday.
