REAL MADRID are reportedly planning a quiet transfer window as they look to offload nearly £200million of dead weight to stay afloat.
Marca claims Los Blancos are feeling the full financial crunch of coronavirus as they look to relieve Barcelona of the La Liga title.
Just like in England, Spanish football fans are not allowed to watch their teams play live.
And Real have apparently been hit badly in the pocket.
As a result, Zinedine Zidane will not be looking to make a single new signing this summer, despite being strongly linked with PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe.
And instead, he will trim the fat from his bloated first-team squad which consists of nearly FORTY players.
It’s believed Real are aiming to raise £190m in sales to help balance the books.
And some of the club’s biggest names could be on their way out.
Real have already banked £40m from Achraf Hakimi’s move to Inter Milan following two successful loan spells with Borussia Dortmund.
James Rodriguez is believed to be available for just £22m with Manchester United and Arsenal interested.
And Gareth Bale could also be on his way out after another falling out with Zidane.
The likes of Marcelo, Mariano and Lucas Vazquez are also sure to be sweating over their futures.
Real’s decision to forgo any new signings is good news for the rest of Europe though, and especially Chelsea.
They are keen to wrap up a deal for Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz.
He was believed to be wanted by Real, but it appears Chelsea are now in pole position for his signature.
