Real Madrid have completed the double signing of Uruguayans Pablo Garcia and Carlos Diogo.
The South American pair have arrived in the Spanish capital to tie up their moves on July 1.
Real confirmed the news on their official website with Garcia and Diogo joining their new team-mates on Real's pre-season tour.
Garcia has left Osasuna to sign on a four-year contract while full back Diogo (pictured), who was representing River Plate, has penned a deal that lasts a year longer.
Uruguayan legend Enzo Francescoli recommended Diogo to Real and the deal was wrapped up swiftly.
There has also been renewed speculation in Spain that the capital club want to bring Liverpool's Steven Gerrard to the Bernabeu with some newspapers claiming the midfielder has told Rafa Benitez that he is "tempted" by a possible switch to La Liga.
Liverpool have maintained their confidence that their inspirational captain will commit his future to Anfield after steering the club to UEFA Champions League glory last season.
