The strategy seems to be defined for Real Madrid in the next transfer window. The club are looking to save money through sales, rather than investing in new players. It’s considered very unlikely to see Los Blancos agitated in the next summer transfer window.

Achraf Hakimi was the first name in Real Madrid’s list of sales. The Morrocan already signed a deal with Inter Milan, with the Merengues earning around €40 million. The Spanish center-back Javi Sanchez was another transaction, signing a deal with Valladolid worth €3 million.

James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale are heading a list of 5 players on the verge of leaving Real Madrid

James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale are the biggest names in a list of 5 players that are on the verge of leaving the Santiago Bernabeu. Both players are in the top-5 highly-paid players in the squad.

The Colombian could be on his way to the Premier League next season, in a deal that can earn Real Madrid between €20-€25 million.

Long-time criticized by Real’s fans, this could be the last season for Gareth Bale at the Bernabeu. The 30-year-old is no longer a first-option for Zidane, and the rise of young talented players like Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo could force Bale to leave. Valued at €32 million and under contract until 2022, this transfer window is one of Real’s last chances to earn money with the player. Bale has been linked to MLS, to sign for Beckham’s new team, Inter Miami.

Other players like Mariano Diaz, Brahim Diaz and Dani Ceballos can also be transferred. Between salaries and player sales, Real Madrid are looking to save money to face the financial impact caused by the pandemic of COVID-19.

Highly-linked players Havertz, Haaland or Mbappe unlikely to come to Bernabeu

Lots of rumors pointed Havertz to the Bernabeu this next transfer window. But Real Madrid are not planning to invest in the team this year. The club seeks to save money and keep his competitive core for next season. With a wonderful season at Leverkusen, Kai Havertz was reportedly under Real’s radar. However, it’s very unlikely to see Los Blancos particularly agitated in the next couple of months.

Haaland and Mbappe were named Real’s faces for the future, but every move for both players is out of the question for now, given their high-price tag.

Real Madrid won every game after the break, and the club is focused on securing the title. The first La Liga title since 2016.
