Real Madrid are said to be preparing a huge summer cleanup and will not take any prisoners in the transfer window.
Real Madrid are set to change their approach to spending this summer as they look to sell and not loan players who won’t be in the first team.
The reason behind this is that Los Blancos want to generate as much money as possible in order to fund signings.
Florentino Perez is believed to be looking at Kylian Mbappé as his number one target this summer, but the Paris Saint-Germain forward won’t come on the cheap, despite having only a year left on his contract.
This change in planning means a number of players currently on loan from Real Madrid could make permanent starts in the coming window.
This list includes Brahim Diaz (loaned to AC Milan), Dani Ceballos (Arsenal), Jesus Vallejo (Granada), Luka Jovic (Eintracht Frankfurt) and Take Kubo (Getafe). Unless there are major changes, such as a new manager keen to give them a chance, these players are unlikely to have a future at Real Madrid as the club are now looking to capitalize on their chances to play elsewhere.
There could be some exceptions, however, with Martin Odegaard being the main one. The Norwegian midfielder, currently on loan at Arsenal, is expected to be part of Los Blancos’ first team next season, especially as Isco could be set to leave.
Elsewhere, another loan should be sought for Reinier Jesus, who has barely played at Borussia Dortmund this season, while Roma are expected to try to sign Borja Mayoral permanently.
Real Madrid will also be looking to give in to Gareth Bale, who has failed to shine at Tottenham. He will return to the Spanish capital, then his future will be decided, with a sale rather than allowing him to leave for free.
