Real Madrid will listen to offers for both Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale this summer as they look to raise funds.

Why?

Following the collapse of the Super League, heavily backed by Madrid president Florentino Perez, and a first trophy-less season since 2009-10, funds must be raised.

Los Blancos have been rumoured to be interested in both Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe, and will need to raise funds in order to purse the deals.

Hazard joined Madrid two summers ago, in a deal rumoured to be worth up to £130 million pounds.

However, the Belgium has failed to impress in the Spanish capital. Scoring only five times in his 43 games for the side.

Hazard, who has suffered many injury problems since his move, was not included in the Real Madrid squad for their final fixture against Villarreal on Saturday, amid rumours of his departure.

What about Bale?

As for Bale, the Welshman has had a varied tenure in Spain.

Bale joined Madrid in the summer of 2013. It was, at the time, a world record transfer fee of £87 million.

After making an instant impact in his first years at the club, Bale has struggled over the past couple of seasons. Most recently he spent the 2020-21 campaign on loan at Tottenham, from whom he joined Madrid.

Back at Spurs, Bale netted 16 goals as Tottenham finished seventh in the table. Qualifying for the inaugural UEFA Conference League.

Following Spurs last game of the Premier League season, Bale said he has made a decision on his future, but will wait until after the Euro’s to reveal it as it would “cause chaos”.

Bale’s contract expires in the summer of 2022, meaning he will be available as a free agent in 12 months time.
