Real Madrid would reportedly be willing to listen to offers for Eden Hazard, Marco Asensio, or Rodrygo if they complete a deal to sign Kylian Mbappe before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.
Los Blancos have made their move for the French winger in the final week of the window, but Paris Saint-Germain has so far held firm on their valuation of the 22-year-old.
The Spanish giants are understood to have seen two bids rejected already – the latest worth a reported £154.5m including add-ons – and are expected to return with a third offer as they bid to pull off their dream signing.
Mbappe has now entered the final 12 months of his contract at the Parc des Princes and has refused to put pen to paper on a new deal, meaning that PSG faces losing him for free next summer if they do not cash in on him now.
Recent reports have suggested that Madrid may be forced to wait until January to seal Mbappe’s signature, but Goal claims that they are still preparing for his possible arrival this month.
The preparation includes putting other players up for sale, and the report claims that Madrid will consider bids for Hazard, Asensio or Rodrygo to make way for Mbappe.
Juventus have been linked with a move for Hazard as a replacement for Manchester United-bound Cristiano Ronaldo, although the Belgian has previously insisted that he intends to fight for his place at the Bernabeu.
Asensio is considered the most likely to leave as Madrid look to trim their squad before the deadline, with Gareth Bale, Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz also up for sale.
