Real Madrid are happy to sell Mesut Ozil and Angel di Maria in order to fund their ambitions of bringing Gareth Bale to the Bernabeu, according to talkSPORT.
The website's Spanish football expert Pete Jenson believes that although the pair are considered important players at Madrid, the club is looking to cash in on them in order to raise money for their purchase of Gareth Bale.
Both Di Maria and Ozil have been linked with various top flight sides around Europe, with Arsenal in particular stating an interest in the prior. Meanwhile Manchester United have been connected with Ozil, and may take advantage of Los Blancos' willingness to allow him to depart.
Any potential finalised deal for Gareth Bale is expected to cost Madrid an unprecedented transfer fee, in excess of £80million. Although paying the entire sum upfront is out of the question, the Spanish giants are assessing all avenues for raising funds to dampen the blow the fee will incur.
