Real Madrid are looking forward to signing Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland or PSG’s Kylian Mbappe this summer.
But before any deal could happen, they need to permanently offload players currently in their ‘loan box’, as per AS.
And Arsenal duo, Martin Odegaard and Dani Ceballos, who are among the most valuable assets with the Norwegian in particular having impressed, have been included on the exit list.
They are so determined on offloading Gareth Bale, despite the Welshman last week revealing that he intends to return to Madrid at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old winger earns over £600,000-a-week at Santiago Bernabeu, and would need to be offloaded in order for the club to afford a package for a new major star.
And Norwegian in-demand forward, Erling Haaland, whose father Alf-Inge and agent Mino Raiola have visited both Barcelona and Madrid for talks, will likely cost around £150m this summer, as Borussia Dortmund dig their heels in.
And Kylian Mbappe, 22, who will have just a year remaining on his contract, could still cost £128m from Paris Saint-Germain.
Striker Luka Jovic has managed just three Bundesliga goals this term back on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt this season, and will be cashed in on by Madrid this summer.
Teenage duo Reinier and Take Kubo are set to be given up on in pursuit of Haaland and Mbappe, while former Wolves defender Jesus Vallejo, currently at Granada, will be up for sale.
