Real Madrid have already spent over £300 million this summer. The most recent signing, Ferland Mendy has joined Los Blancos with four other new arrivals: Eden Hazard, Eder Militao, Luka Jovic and Rodrygo (Express).
With Madrid also reportedly looking to sign Manchester United and France midfielder, Paul Pogba, they would have to offload some dead wood from their squad to fund a move (Express). Madrid’s decision to fund a move for Pogba could benefit Spurs as they look to strengthen their squad in the last month of the transfer window.
The Mirror have now reported that a list of six unwanted players has been drawn up in a bid to fund a move for Pogba. Gareth Bale and Isco are amongst the list of unwanted players at Madrid. The pair represent the most valuable players on the transfer list and are joined by the likes of James Rodriguez, Keylor Navas, Lucas Vazquez and Mariano Diaz.
Spurs will undoubtedly be looking to strengthen the squad further before the start of the new Premier League campaign and it will be interesting to see whether any of these names develop into potential transfer targets over the coming weeks.
Spurs’ interest in Madrid’s Cabellos has continued to rise in recent days (Sport) and with Madrid hopeful of freeing up funds for Pogba, Levy may have some extra bargaining power as he looks to strike a deal for the 22-year-old.

It has been made public that Bale is not in Zidane’s plan and while I would love to see him return to Spurs his wages amount to a staggering £600,000 per-week (The Mirror). With Bale’s recent injuries in mind, the figure does not represent good value, nor is it affordable for our current wage structure.
