Real Madrid ‘plan to raise £90million by trimming players from their squad this summer’ after realising that Gareth Bale is ‘unsaleable’.
Having secured the LaLiga title, Zinedine Zidane will try and strengthen his team and it’s some of his fringe players that will get the cut.
Borja Mayoral, Oscar Rodriguez, Mariano Diaz and Sergio Reguilon could be among those on their way out of the Bernabeu, according to Diario AS.

Reports in Spain suggest Real have concluded Gareth Bale’s high wage demands make him ‘unsaleable’ at the moment
‘The money is in the youth’ reads their front page on Tuesday as they report the summer firesale of those struggling to get game time.
AS say that Real have also concluded there won’t be much interest for Wales star Bale this summer with his £350,000-a-week wage demands prohibitive for most clubs.
The sales of other members of the squad will help fund potential moves for RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek and Eduardo Camavinga of Rennes.
Defender Achraf Hakimi has already signed for Inter Milan in a deal worth £35m following two years out on loan at Borussia Dortmund, while Javi Sanchez has agreed a move to Real Valladolid.
Striker Borja Mayoral, 23, has made 31 first-team appearances, scoring seven goals, but has spent the last two seasons on loan at Levante.

He has been linked with Lazio and Valencia but AS now report that Villarreal could be the favourites as Real look to offload him before the final year of his contract.
With Luka Jovic given another season to impress, 26-year-old striker Mariano Diaz is also expected to be put up for sale.
