This January, Real Madrid will likely sell five of its fringe players to other clubs around world.
The club manager Zinedine Zidane feels his team is stronger without the five players and he is willing to sanction their sale to other clubs if the right price is offered or, if the club signs better players than them.
According to Marca, Zidane is willing to let Isco leave this January. The Spanish playmaker is not his plan but due to club’s lack of investment in the summer, Zidane is forced to find space for Isco in the bench.
Isco though wants to play regular football and submitted a transfer request which was accepted. The playmaker is currently linked to Everton and Arsenal.
Real Madrid may also let Luka Jovic leave the club. Since his $40m in 2019, the Serbian international has struggled for goals and consistency. He may likely join AC Milan on loan or, return to Eintract Frankfurt who are willing to sign him back for $20m.
Madrid could also sell Brahim Diaz to AC Milan permanently. The on loan star has impressed the Italian giants who are hoping to trigger the loan clause which permits them to sign the player for just $25m.
This January, Real Madrid can also encourage Rodrygo to leave the club. The Brazilian, 20, is a talented player, but he lacks the experience and temperament to break into the first team of Real Madrid.
