Following the purchase of Welshman Gareth Bale for a world record fee of £85million, Real Madrid are set to have a clear out of some players made surplus to requirements in order to make up for the significant amount of funds used to recruit Bale.
Karim Benzema, Angel Di Maria, Mesut Ozil, and Fabio Coentrao could be on the list of potential exits.
According to the Daily Mirror, Spurs are set to continue their significant spending splurge by signing out of favour Madrid left-back Fabio Coentrao on a season long loan deal.
Real Madrid are reportedly wanting a fee in the region of £15million to take the Portugal international to White Hart Lane, but chairman Daniel Levy does not want to pay that amount and is enquiring over a possible loan move.
The full-back is a solid defender and is enthusiastic with attacking as well. Sources suggest Manchester United are also interested in Coentrao, but would prefer to recruit their other target, Leighton Baines.
With the Lilywhites losing 1-0 to Arsenal in yesterday's north London derby, they are keen to further strengthen their defensive options, and might also land another attack-minded player with Tom Ince, Hulk and Alvaro Vadillo on their radar.
