Real Madrid's summer of expenditure will prompt a late flurry of transfer activity before the close of the transfer window, as the Spanish giants look to recoup some of the funds they have splurged over the past few months.
Gareth Bale is set to complete his transfer to Madrid this week, with the club reported to have agreed a world record fee of £86 million to capture his signature from Tottenham.
But Bale is not the first high-profile acquisition made by Real Madrid so far this summer, with Asier Illarramendi, Isco, Daniel Carvajal and Casemiro also acquired for princely sums.
Real Madrid's spending, taking into account the fee for Bale, is set to exceed £150 million but, with just over £50 million coming in, they must now sell in order to fall in line with UEFA's FFP regulations.
This is expected to lead to a number of high-profile players to leave the club before September 2, with the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal credited with interest in a number of Real Madrid stars.
Both David Moyes and Arsene Wenger have failed to recruit a player of note this summer, and may see the exodus in Madrid as an excellent opportunity to bring a reputable signing or two to either Old Trafford or the Emirates Stadium by next Monday.
But who is heading out of Real Madrid?
