Real Madrid's player sale plans are now getting into full swing. With Gabriel Heinze now signed with Olympique Marseille, Javier Saviola and Javi Garcia at Benfica and Dani Parejo with Getafe, Real management are growing more confident of slashing the size of coach Manuel Pellegrini's squad.

Ajax have joined Arsenal and Tottenham in their interest in Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, while Real Zaragoza are keen on fullback Miguel Torres.

Wesley Sneijder also could attract a buyer, with AC Milan seeing the Dutchman as a replacement for Chelsea target Andrea Pirlo.
