Real Madrid's plans to sell their deadwood this summer are finally getting into shape as clubs have shown interest in some of these players. The papers today have some good news for the Madridistas as many players deemed excess to requirements might be leaving the club soon.
Real Madrid eye Valencia star
As per a report in Defensa Central., Real Madrid have set their sights on signing Rodrigo this summer. The Valencia star is reportedly available for sale as the Spanish club are struggling financially.
Los Blancos are reportedly keen on getting the striker who was close to joining Leeds United. He carries a £22 million price tag, and Real Madrid see him as an ideal replacement for Luka Jovic, as per the same report.
Adding to that report, AS have claimed that Valencia are not willing to sell the player to the Blancos for cheap. They want the La Liga champions to pay over the odds to get the striker this summer.
However, Fabrizio Romano has reported that Rodrigo is joining Leeds United.
Brahim Diaz to join AC Milan
After weeks of speculation about AC Milan signing a Real Madrid player, Brahim Diaz is heading to the San Siro. The former Manchester City starlet is going to move from Real Madrid on loan, with an obligation for Milan to buy him next summer.
Fabrizio Romano reports that discussions are going on between the two clubs in this regard, and a decision is likely to be made soon. AC Milan are also interested in the Real Madrid trio of Luka Jovic, Oscar Rodriguez and Dani Ceballos.
Valencia interested in signing Borja Mayoral
