Eighteen players to go in Real Madrid clearout

Up to EIGHTEEN Real Madrid players could be offloaded at the end of the season.

El Mundo Deportivo says Jordi Codina, Jerzy Dudek, Michel Salgado, Gabriel Heinze, Fabio Cannavaro, Javi Garcia, Mahamadou Diarra, Royston Drenthe, Wesley Sneijder, Rafael van der Vaart, Christoph Metzelder, Javier Saviola, Julien Faubert, Marcelo and Miguel Torres will all be either touted around Europe or allowed to wind down their existing contracts through to June 30.

The above 15 could be joined by trio Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Arjen Robben and Fernando Gago - all depending on how they perform between now and the end of the season.

There are also eight untouchables, who Real will not consider offers for under any circumstances: Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Gonzalo Higuain, Lassana Diarra, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Guti and Raul.
