Real Madrid are aiming to sign Borussia Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland or PSG’s Kylian Mbappe this summer.
But to do so, Los Blancos need to permanently offload players currently in their ‘loan box’, says AS.
Among the most valuable assets is Arsenal duo, Martin Odegaard and Dani Ceballos, with the Norwegian, in particular, has impressed.
They are also hell-bent on selling 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 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.
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 digs their heels in.
And Mbappe, 22, who will have just a year remaining on his contract, could still cost £128m from Paris Saint-Germain.
Flop Luka Jovic has managed only 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.
