Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid, is ready to accelerate the club's de-cluttering efforts.
According to Marca, David Alaba will not be sold because he has only recently arrived, but only Thibaut Courtois, Karim Benzema, Fede Valverde, and Vinicius Jr are off the market, with Carlo Ancelotti requesting the latter's inclusion in his squad.
Even Ferland Mendy is not impenetrable. Then there's Martin Odegaard, who was allowed to go on loan to Arsenal in January and might be transferred this summer if an offer impresses the Spanish club's board of directors. The future of the Norwegian at Real Madrid is still up in the air.
Those in command at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu understand that rebuilding the group would be difficult, and that it may necessitate the departure of some key players, such as Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
Offers for various players of the squad could be made to Real Madrid between now and August 31. So yet, the only offers for Odegaard have been loan propositions. However, there is still a month until the transfer window closes.
If additional players leave, Real Madrid believes they have potential in the academy that can fill the void. Miguel Gutierrez, Antonio Blanco, and Mario Gila have all made an impression and could play a significant role in the future.
