Real Madrid to raise £250m after Hazard arrival to avoid Champions League ban

Real Madrid “must raise more than £250million in sales”, in order to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations (FFP) and avoid possible ban from the Champions League.

Los Blancos have already announced deals for both Luka Jovic, arriving for £62m from Frankfurt and Eden Hazard who is joining from Chelsea in a £130m move.

But according to AS, given the club want to add more high-profile additions this summer, manager Zinedine Zidane needs to shift a number of big earners out to balance the books.

Zidane is pushing for deals for both Paul Pogba and Christian Eriksen.

The Premier League pair would likely cost another £200m, so Real must raise money from sales.

Up to 13 players could be moved on, with Gareth Bale, Mateo Kovacic and James Rodriguez some of the players expected to go.

Martin Odegaard and Isco also face uncertain futures at the Bernabeu, particularly given Hazard, who plays in their preferred position, has arrived as a ‘Galactico’ this summer.
