Premier League clubs are on full alert, as there could be a few Real Madrid stars becoming available, with the Spanish club closing in on AS Monaco's James Rodriguez.

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are lining up summer bids for a whole host of Real players, as the arrival of Rodriguez might spark a clear out.

Rodriguez has been one of the hottest names on the transfer market post the World Cup, with Manchester United also rumoured to be interested. But the player had eyes only for one club and looks like Real and the player's wishes are coming true.

With the arrival of the Colombian imminent, it looks like plenty of top quality footballers will look for pastures new as playing time at the Spanish capital club could be limited.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Angel Di Maria, who had an impressive season with Real, but is open to a move, despite the manager wanting to keep him at the club. The Red Devils could face competition from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain for the Argentine winger's signature.

The current European champions have also signed Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich, leaving current midfielders, looking at other clubs for regular game time. One of them is Sami Khedira, who has been linked with a move to England with Arsenal and Chelsea vying for his services. Many reports claimed that Arsenal had secured his services, but were denied by his agent.

Liverpool have been credited with interest in former Malaga midfielder Isco, who might find it difficult to force his way into the starting XI with the imminent arrival of the Colombian star. Brendan Rodgers has been the most active manager this summer transfer window and will welcome the addition of the Spanish star to the list of arrivals at Anfield.

This scenario is reminiscent of last summer when Mesut Ozil became available late in the transfer window, after Real completed their long and protracted transfer of Gareth Bale from Tottenham.
