Real Madrid are willing to sell both Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale if suitable offers arrive this summer.

Bale has spent the season on loan at former club Tottenham, while Hazard has continued to struggle to make an impact in Madrid and managed just 14 league appearances this season.

The Welshman is set to return to Madrid this summer after the European Championships (though he claimed on Sunday that he has made a decision about his future and revealing it now would cause a frenzy), but Sky Sports report that both he and Hazard are free to leave should the right offer come in.

Los Blancos are looking to raise funds following the collapse of the European Super League in order to rebuild their squad once more. Striker Luka Jovic - who has spent the season on loan with Eintracht Frankfurt - is also up for sale.

Bale is entering the final year of his Real contract. Hazard, meanwhile, penned a deal until 2024 when he signed from Chelsea two years ago, managing just five goals in that time in a constant battle for fitness.

Real look set for a summer overhaul in an attempt to free up the wage bill and pursue new targets in an attempt to rebuild the squad. Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland continue to be linked with a move to the club despite significant funding being needed to complete deals of such size.

Los Blancos finished the season without a major trophy for the first time since 2009/10 having surrendered La Liga to city rivals Atletico Madrid by two points.

The future of head coach Zinedine Zidane also remains unclear, and next season could serve as a hard reset should Real be able to get such big names off the wage bill.
