As Madrid's finances are set to be hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, up to 10 players could be sold at the end of the season to fund this summer's signings. Tribuna.com take a closer look at Zinedine Zidane's potential transfer kitty for the upcoming window.
Real Madrid could recoup up to €200m from selling fringe players at the end of the season to fund this summer's signings.
Some reports have suggested that the Whites are set to suffer a shortfall of around €165m as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, thus, Madrid would have to sell in order to buy in the upcoming window.
The coronavirus pandemic has already reduced players' market value by around 30 per cent but a total fee Madrid could earn from this summer's departures currently stands at €297.5m, as per Transfermarkt's valuation.
Here are 10 Madrid players and loanees that are no longer viewed as regular starters by Zinedine Zidane and could be offloaded this summer.
- Gareth Bale - €32m
- James Rodriguez - €32m
- Lucas Vazquez - €16m
- Marcelo - €16m
- Brahim Diaz - €13.5m
- Mariano Díaz - €13m
- Luka Modric - €12m
- Dani Ceballos - €32m
- Alvaro Odriozola - €16m
- Oscar Rodríguez - €11m
And don't forget that Madrid could negotiate much higher fees than Transfermarkt's ones.
