According to MARCA, Real hope to recoup close to £175m from player sales, which will help to provide Zidane with his overall £265m budget.
Eder Militao and Rodrygo have already sealed moves to Madrid, while Luka Jovic and Ferland Mendy are set to join them at the Bernabeu.
Gareth Bale, Dani Ceballos, Keylor Navas and Marcos Llorente are all expected to leave, but they are unlikely to be the only departures.

The Brazilian remains on Real’s watch-list but their ability to afford him may depend on how much extra income they can rake in from player sales.
