Real Madrid decide to sell 5 first team players following El Clasico loss
The defeat to Barcelona at home has hit the Madrid board hard, and they have made some shocking decisions. The board have decided to sell five first team players and replace them with world class talents according to Diario GOL.
Zidane's men were level on terms in the added time of the 2nd half, but some Messi magic won the game for the Catalan side. Florentino Perez and co were frustrated to the core that they called for an emergency meeting with the manager on Monday and charted out the plans for the summer.
Here are the five players who are set to be sold in the summer:
#1 - Keylor Navas
Navas had a brilliant game in goal, but the board are still blaming him for conceding three goals. The members are frustrated with his positioning and have decided to sell him in the summer.
The Costa Rican is a target for Lazio and reports earlier this season suggested that the goalkeeper had agreed terms to join them. With Madrid looking to sell the shot-stopper in the summer, the Serie A side will take full advantage of it and agree a deal with Los Blancos as well.
David De Gea is being targetted by the club board members to replace Navas. Los Blancos are ready to offer a world-record fee for the Spaniard, but Red Devils reportedly want Raphael Varane and Alvaro Morata in return.
