Real Madrid coach Zidane draws up 'black list' of names to sell

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is drawing up a 'black list' of names for president Florentino Perez to put up for sale this summer.

Zidane has admitted in recent days that players will be sold and a major overhaul held after a disastrous season.

El Confidencial says a 'black list' is now being put together, with Gareth Bale top of the agenda. Also due to leave will be Marcos Llorente, Dani Ceballos, Sergio Reguilón and Mariano Diaz, as well one goalkeeper between Andriy Lunin and Thibaut Courtois.

Loan players Mateo Kovacic, Martin Odegaard, Raúl de Tomás and Borja Mayoral also could all be sold.

And to raise major transfer funds, Zidane is prepared to sacrifice one or more from Marcelo, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.
