Marca says stunned by the morning reports that plans to sell five of their first team squad - Julio Baptista, Jerzy Dudek, Royston Drenthe, Roberto Soldado and Javier Saviola - had made it to the press, Real president Ramon Calderon and his directors spent the flight meeting with the squad's leaders Raul and Guti.

Just 24 hours before tonight's meeting with Werder Bremen, Raul and Guti were furious that reports had appeared which could destabilise the team.

Calderon agreed with the players and is demanding that leaks to the media, particularly those that can affect the team, must end.
