Real Madrid are looking to amass a transfer warchest of about £80m through the sale of high-profile trio Angel Di Maria, Sami Khedira and Alvaro Morata this summer, reports in Spain claim.
As they did last year – through the sales of Mesut Ozil to Arsenal, and Gonzalo Higuain, Jose Callejon and Raul Albiol to Napoli – the Champions League winners will be looking to add some extra funds to an already strong financial set-up to invest in new players.
Even though they are yet to confirm any new signing, reports in Spain claim they have already agree terms for Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich and are also monitoring Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez – a sure sign that a number of players will leave the club in the summer.
According to El Confidencial, Di Maria, Khedira and Morata are likely to leave the Santiago Bernabeu and Real are open to negotiating their departures – but only at prices that suit the club.
They will want to get at least £40m for the Argentinian international, £16m for the German star and £24m for the striker.
Di Maria is currently one of the most coveted players in the market and Real expect some suitors will eventually meet their valuation.
Arsenal, Manchester United, Monaco, Juventus and Paris Saint Germain have all been tracking the Argentinian during the World Cup with, according to El Confidencial, Louis van Gaal's side leading the race to secure his services.
Nevertheless, his agent Jorge Mendes is reportedly planning a summer double swap that will see the winger moving to Old Trafford and James Rodriguez replacing him at Real Madrid.
The La Liga giants are also considering selling Khedira for a cut-price £16m as his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu expires next year and this constitutes Real's last chance to recoup some money for the Germany midfielder.
Earlier this week Mundo Deportivo reported that Mesut Ozil is trying to convince his former teammate to join him at Arsenal.
Furthermore, Real Madrid are open to dispensing with Morata. Arsenal have been linked with his services in recent months but currently Juventus are in the pole position. Nevertheless, the deal has been delayed as Los Blancos are trying to include a buy-back clause in his contract.
