Although Real Madrid have had a pretty decent transfer window so far, an embarrassing 7-3 defeat against Atletico Madrid in a pre-season friendly match showed how much more they needed to invest and all their weaknesses were exposed. Along with drafting in new players, the club would also need to sell out players who are no longer needed in the team. Manager Zinedine Zidane has realised the need to do that as well.
As per reports published in Don Balon, a Spanish weekly sports magazine, Zidane has named five players who he wants to sell in the transfer window. The reports elaborate that the selling of these players would, in turn, help them in areas of the game they need improvement in.
With a little more time to go before the transfer window is closed, Real Madrid will have still got an opportunity to make major changes in their squad.
Here is the list of players
Gareth Bale, Isco, Lucas Vazquez, James Rodriguez and Mariano.
While Gareth Bale is reportedly moving to China, AS Monaco FC are interested in Mariano.
Real Madrid will now need to look for suitable deals to sell these players in the ongoing transfer window.
