AS says Real have been planning for some weeks ahead of the summer market. The strategy sessions have been a closed shop, with only coach Jose Mourinho, president Florentino Perez, adviser Zinedine Zidane and vice-president Jose Angel Sanchez involved.
For departures, it will be a busy summer.
Jerzy Dudek, Pedro Leon, Sergio Canales and Fernando Gago will all be shown the door.
And if Kaka gets an offer that meets expectations, it would be welcome by Real.
