Zidane Makes Two Real Madrid Stars Available For Transfers
At the rate Florentino Perez gets through managers, there's no guarantees that Zinedine Zidane will even be in the Bernabeu dugout come the start of next season but nonetheless, the Frenchman is making plans for the future and they're not plans that include Isco or James Rodriguez.
Despite the two midfielders setting 'Los Blancos' back the best part of £110m, Zidane is willing to cut them loose and recoup somewhere in the region of £94m for the pair, putting Premier League clubs on red alert for the Summer transfer window.
Isco is valued at £33.75m while Real will demand £60m for Rodriguez, the Colombian attacker who was signed for £70m after lighting up the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Rodriguez has suffered injuries this campaign which have hampered his progress and his demand for a pay rise on his £7.7m salary hasn't gone down well with Real's chiefs. Isco meanwhile, barely celebrated his recent goal over Levante and flung his shinpads and jacket to the floor when substituted during last weekend's 2-1 victory away at Las Palmas.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all believed to have registered an interest in the pair, with Juventus also interested in Isco's signature.
