Real Madrid ready to offload unwanted players

Real Madrid are looking to move on from at least three players in the January transfer window.

The new year is upon us which for Real Madrid means the start of the winter transfer window. Looking at their squad, there isn’t really an area where they could make an acquisition. However, there are plenty of options should they look to move on from certain players.

According to Marca, that’s exactly the route Los Blancos set to go in.

The Spanish outlet are reporting that the club are looking to move on the likes of Jesus Vallejo, Brahim Diaz and Mariano Diaz.

Vallejo is currently on loan with Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League but has struggled to find opportunities. German side Eintracht Frankfurt are reportedly interested in the Spanish defender but since he is on loan, the final decision is going to be up to Wolves. With how well their season is going, they may want to keep him if just for squad depth.

Brahim Diaz is another name on the chopping block with the ex-Manchester City player hardly playing at all since arriving last January. He hasn’t suffered from injuries but rather isn’t counted on by Zinedine Zidane.

Mariano Diaz is a different story. The former Lyon player was brought in as one of the players Real Madrid was hopeful would provide some of the goals they were losing when they sold Cristiano Ronaldo.

That plan has not worked out for either side with Mariano being plagued by injuries and not getting a look in when healthy.

His future is perhaps a bit clearer than the other two with Diario AS reporting that his former side, Lyon, are interested in a reunion.

Luckily for all three players involved, they are all in their early 20s which means that their careers are far from over. While all three players have struggled at Real Madrid, a move away may be the best thing for them to get back on track.
