Real Madrid set for January clear out

Perez has told Jorge Valdano and Miguel Pardeza that at least six players will have to leave the club.

El Mundo Deportivo says Perez is unhappy with the amount of players in the squad and is keen to reduce the club’s wage bill.

Guti could be sold if he fails to make an impact in the Real team before January.

Mahamadou Diarra, Fernando Gago, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Jerzy Dudek, Royston Drenthe and Christophe Metzelder are also expected to be offered to other clubs.
