Why Real Madrid Might Be Banned From Champions League After Hazard Buy

Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid face the risk of being banned from the Champions League if they go against the Financial Fair Play rules and that is already being threatened with the capture of Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

Real Madrid have therefore, been told that they “must raise more than £250million in sales”, in order to comply with Financial Fair Play(FFP) regulations and avoid the possible ban.

Los Blancos have already announced deals for both Luka Jovic, arriving for £62m from Frankfurt and Eden Hazard who is joining from Chelsea in a £130m move.

But according to AS, given that the club want to add more high-profile additions this summer, manager Zinedine Zidane needs to shift a number of big earners out to balance the books.

Zidane is pushing for deals for both Paul Pogba and Christian Eriksen.

The Premier League pair would likely cost another £200m, so Real must raise money from sales.

Up to 13 players could be moved on, with Gareth Bale, Mateo Kovacic and James Rodriguez some of the players expected to go.

Martin Odegaard and Isco also face uncertain futures at the Bernabeu, particularly given that Hazard, who plays in their preferred position, has arrived as a ‘Galactico’ this summer.
