boss Zinedine Zidane is reportedly ploughing ahead with a number of player sales this summer, with Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez both heavily linked with moves away. 

Bale is not in Zidane's first-team plans at the Bernabeu and was not even picked in Madrid's squad for their Champions League last-16 defeat to Manchester City on Friday evening. 

Rodriguez, similarly, has failed to cement a starting spot under Zidane and has been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Zidane keen on selling deadwood in the squad to increase his own transfer budget, according to Spanish outlet Marca.
