Real Madrid are reportedly plotting a five-man exodus to free up space and funds to consider possible signings.

Covid-19 has done more damage to the financial stability of clubs across Europe and the Los Blancos just like other clubs are having to adjust their budgets as they deal with the financial crisis caused by the disease.

According to AS, Real Madrid plan to release at least five players, with James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez and Mariano Diaz all specifically said to be on the market and perhaps first out of the door if the interest is there.

Meanwhile, Ballon d'or winner, Luka Modric, Marcelo and Nacho could also be on the way out of the club while Brahim Diaz and Reinier Jesus could be shipped out on loan.

This will only work if genuine interest is expressed from clubs to the mentioned players.

Nevertheless, with Zinedine Zidane’s side still looking to stay in contention for major trophies this season if it resumes, he would arguably welcome the addition of reinforcements to give them a boost, or perhaps those returning from loan spells elsewhere could help give him the tools needed to compete if new signings aren’t a realistic option this summer.
