GET OUT! Real Madrid president Florentino puts line through ten players

Furious after their latest defeat at Espanyol, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is prepared to see TEN of his squad sold this summer.

Diario Gol says Perez is fuming over the attitude of many of Real's players and feels they're now running down the Merengues shirt. The president feels there are several players who will never fulfill their potential, while others are now well past their peak.

Borja Mayoral, Achraf Hakimi, Jesús Vallejo and Marcos Llorente can all go at the end of the season. Isco, Raphael Varane and Mateo Kovacic will also be put up for sale in the coming weeks.

Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale will be offered across Europe, while either Keylor Navas or Kiko Casilla will be sold.

Interestingly, two young players who won't be allowed to move on, despite their wish to do so, are Dani Ceballos and Theo Hernandez. Perez sees both players as having the potential to be cornerstones of the next great Real Madrid team.
