A report claims that Real Madrid intend to raise around £180m through player sales this summer, with incoming activity unlikely until 2021.

Real Madrid are reportedly more concerned about selling players this summer than adding new recruits to their squad.

Los Blancos are well on their way to winning a first La Liga title in three years and had been tipped to strengthen ahead of next season.

Due to the knock-on effect of the coronavirus pandemic, however, Spanish outlet Marca claims that Madrid will not be buying any players until at least 2021.

Instead, it is suggested that Zinedine Zidane's men are looking to recoup €200m (£180m) from player sales, with Achraf Hakimi and Javi Sanchez having already been sold.

Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez look set to exit the Santiago Bernabeu in the coming months, meanwhile, as do the likes of Dani Ceballos, Mariano Diaz and Brahim Diaz.

It has been reported elsewhere that Madrid are already planning to bring in one or both of Erling Braut Haaland and Kylian Mbappe at the end of the 2020-21 season.
