Real Madrid are apparently planning to push Gareth Bale and James Rodríguez out the exit door in the January transfer window, with the club under pressure to recoup €200m to balance their books.
Los Blancos spent €307m on new signings before the start of the season, with Eden Hazard, Luka Jović and Éder Militão among a handful of new players that joined Zinedine Zidane's squad in the summer.
As far as Financial Fair Play regulations are concerned, UEFA do actually allow teams to have a net spent of €100m, but this still means Real Madrid will be forced to undergo a fire sale in the January transfer window.
Elsewhere in the squad, the January transfer window will also prove to be the last chance that Real Madrid have to sell Luka Modrić, as well as centre-back Nacho Fernández, as his contract expires at the end of the season.
Real are keen to resurrect their interest in Donny van de Beek - much more affordable than the other options! 👌 https://t.co/apyFXUKr1I— 90min (@90min_Football) December 6, 2019
It was suggested on The Transfer Window Podcast that Los Blancos would look to exchange summer signing Jović in an attempt to sweeten a deal with Arsenal.
The Gabon international is apparently ready to quit Arsenal after halting talks over a new long-term contract, so a deal which sees Jović move to north London in exchange for Aubameyang could suit all parties, although at this stage there isn't much substance to the rumour.
