Real Madrid are reportedly preparing to offload four first-team players in order to fund a move for Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger.
The Germany international has still not signed a new deal at Stamford Bridge, meaning that, as it stands, he will be free to hold discussions with foreign clubs at the start of 2022.
Real Madrid continue to be linked with the centre-back, and according to AS, Carlo Ancelotti‘s side will offload four players to offer Rudiger a £200,000-a-week deal at the Bernabeu.
The report claims that Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Isco – all out of contract next June – will be allowed to leave the club on free transfers.
Meanwhile, the capital giants are allegedly determined to find a buyer for Eden Hazard, who has struggled to make his mark at the club since arriving from Chelsea in 2019.
A recent report claimed that Liverpool are interested in signing Hazard, but Manchester United are said to be one of four clubs to have turned down the chance to sign the 30-year-old next year.
