Real Madrid have a big summer coming up in the transfer window. The Galacticos, according to AS, will have to first sell players if they want to buy and in that regard, the club have some names listed out.
The Galacticos have too many players in their squad and will have to ensure the departures before any arrivals. The Merengues do have four to five players who they want to sell in the form Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, Lucas Vazquez and Mariano Diaz.
They are also open to listening to offers for Marcelo, Nacho, Luka Modric and Brahim Diaz. The former three players have been loyal servants to the clubs for a number of years and, as a result, the club will sit with them to discuss to conditions of their departure.
Buenos días! "Galácticos on the wane" is Sunday's front-page headline as economists and agents believe gargantuan transfer fees and bloated wage packages could be a thing of the past. https://t.co/a189r6ukpp pic.twitter.com/xVnEySnXwR— AS English (@English_AS) March 29, 2020
The idea with Diaz, meanwhile, will be to convince him to leave on loan.
In terms of arrival, the Galacticos are looking to retain some of the players that will come back from their loan. Martin Odegaard and Achraf Hakimi are the likeliest to be kept by the club.
Meanwhile, Zinedine Zidane is still interested in Paul Pogba but the board prefers Fabian Ruiz instead. On the other hand, the Blancos are also planning to bring a number 9 if Luka Jovic’s performance doesn’t improve, with Erling Braut Haaland being the preferred choice.
