Madrid Press: Trio could leave to make way for signings


Spain take on Australia this evening in their final group game before heading home from the World Cup. The match is a dead rubber, and Marca and AS both go with front pages with headlines calling for a dignified exit. Vicente del Bosque is expected to make a number of changes in the team with the likes of Pepe Reina, Juan Mata, David Villa and Juanfran coming into the side.

For news related to Real Madrid, it is once again transfer talk that is making the headlines. But rather than players potentially arriving at the club, there is talk about Los Blancos letting three big name players leave to make way for new arrivals.

According to Marca, the club would allow Fabio Coentrao, Sami Khedira and Angel di Maria to leave if the right offer comes along. Speculation has surrounded the trio for some time, and they were even linked with moves away last summer, but in the end stayed and helped the club with the Copa del Rey and Champions League.

The Premier League is the most likely destination for the three, with Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool all been linked with the players at various points.  The likes of PSG and Monaco in France would probably want to have their say though, while Benfica could be interested in taking Coentrao back to his former club.
