While they've added three new signings in recent weeks, Real Madrid management now face the difficult task of finding clubs for no less than eight unwanted first teamers.
Sport says after the deals for Nuri Sahin, Hamit Altintop and Jose Callejon, Real are now ready to kickoff their massive planned clearout.
Jerzy Dudek, Ezequiel Garay, Fernando Gago, Lassana Diarra, Esteban Granero, Pedro León, Sergio Canales and Emmanuel Adebayor will all leave Real this summer.
Dudek has already announced his retirement, while Adebayor will be returned to his parent club, Manchester City.
For the remainder, Real must find new destinations, which may include the club covering part of their huge wages to get them off the books.
