New boss Zinedine Zidane and president Florentino Perez have had enough of Real Madrid’s underperforming star players and are ready for a mammoth summer exodus.
That means Premier League giants will now jump into the transfer market to secure a wealth of household names from the scrapheap of Bernabeu.
The pair have already prepared a blacklist of ten players who will be most likely shown the door, according to a unbelievable report from Spanish news outlet Sport.
Chief among the players are heavyweights and Madrid dressing room’s most influential players Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos.
The pair said to have informed president Perez that they wants to leave following the shocking home defeat to Atletico last Saturday.
Fans repeatedly called for Florentino Perez’s head during the 1-0 defeat, which all-but wiped out Real from the La Liga title race, and the club president knows well his final lifeline could be to axe the stars whose commitment has been called into question recently.
Real Madrid boss Zidane blasted his team for a lack of attitude after that defeat and also warned there would be massive change next season.
And the French legend is willing to back Florentino Perez to the shocking decision, in a bid to hold onto his dream job.
Spanish daily Sport also claims, as well as Ronaldo and Ramos – Spain internationals Isco and Arbeloa, Colombian star James Rodriguez, German midfielder Toni Kroos, two Brazilians Casemiro and Danilo and academy graduate Jese will find their names on the transfer list.
31-year-old Ronaldo has been highly linked with a return to Manchester United over the past two seasons and he could be sold for a sensational €60million.
United hierarchy also placed a £32million bid for Madrid skipper Ramos last summer and were also preparing a record move for Brazil World Cup Golden Boot winner, Rodriguez in the January transfer window.
United chief executive Ed Woodward could now reopen talks for all the three stars as he desperately wants to bring in a sought-after ‘marquee signing’ to save his image among the fans.
David De Gea is still believed to complete his move in the Spanish capital before the next season starts.
23 year old Isco is expected to be available for around £35m; and Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal are all have shown their interest on the former Malaga man.
While World Cup winner German playmaker Kroos will not be short of takers around Europe as Manchester United have prepared their new bid for him.
President Perez will be keen to get business done swiftly in the close season, to beat Madrid’s impending transfer ban.
Earlier it was revealed that the 10-time European champions are preparing an astonishing 250 million pounds raid on the Premier League, with Hazard their top priority target.
They are also lining up moves for De Gea, Man City star Sergio Aguero, Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba and Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.
