Real Madrid are reportedly ready to overhaul their squad as they look towards the next generation of Galacticos.
Club president Florentino Perez is keen on several world-cl ass stars including Eden Hazard, David de Gea and Mauro Icardi.
And in order to fund these moves, a number of top stars may be binned.
That includes Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric, with the latter two coming towards the end of their careers whilst the former is a long-term Manchester United target.
However, one shock exclusion from the Bernabeu could be Madrid ace Isco, who has been on the radar of several Premier League clubs for years.
And according to Diario Gol, the 25-year-old is keen on a move to Chelsea or City – to raise his salary.
As well as a considerable wage hike, he wants the title of top star – which at Real is impossible as long as Cristiano Ronaldo is there.
This season, the former Malaga man has not hit the heights he has in the past.
He has chipped in with seven goals and seven assists and has played in 40 games so far.
But the Spaniard has been dropped to the bench on numerous occasions, as Zinedine Zidane prefers to afford playing time to as many of his stars as possible.
The aforementioned Hazard is high on Los Blancos’ shortlist in the summer.
It gives the Blues a bargaining chip over Pep Guardiola – although the Etihad outfit will be able to afford any wage demands Isco has.
