Report: Spurs may be tempted as Real Madrid put six players up for sale

4

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.

Spurs Web Opinion

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.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. I do not want to see Bale back at the new WHL whatever the deal might be. I hated to see him go, but having turned his back on us once, goodbye lad. We need players dedicated to the future success of the club and their carreers, not a s
    uperstar who’d bleed our bank account white and wreck the team atmosphere hat has brought us this far.

  2. I also don’t see Bale at Spurs, tactically he would come at the cost of Son, Kane, Alli or a playmaker. His wages are stupid, especially compared to his impact over a full season. Then add in the fact that he refused to train with Spurs to force a move. His agent Barnett is a rodent. Then factor in that he didn’t once cheer us on or congratulate us in the two title races with Leicester and Chelsea, or the league cup final, or getting to the champions league final, or even for the final. He can jog right on.

    Isco should have joined us when he had the chance, but I question now whether hes the athlete needed for Pochs system. James Rodriguez is a player who I used to love to watch but now looks a bit pedestrian in his movement and lethargic in his play, compared to his frenetic attacking style at Porto Monaco and even his first Madrid season under ancelloti.

    Diaz is the one who interests me most as he would offer us something different at striker position. That said, we have higher priorities after being absent for 2 transfer windows and I would rather we kept Llorente, and invested in Lo Celso, Van De beek and fixed our right back nightmare position.

  3. Agree with Indyfan. There is also a funny side to this. RealMad overpay thier players, then find that they cannot get rid of them unless they subsidise the wages at their new club.

  4. I’d have Isco at WHL. As for Bale, the only league willing to pick up those wages is China…I wonder what the golf courses are like over there?
