Gareth Bale and Alexis Sanchez could both be available for FREE this summer because their clubs are so desperate to get rid of them, according to reports.
Bale was left on the bench during Real Madrid’s 2-0 defeat to Real Betis on Sunday afternoon and Zinedine Zidane appears to have had enough.
The Frenchman claimed that even if he had been able to bring on a fourth substitute Bale would not have got onto the Bernabeu pitch.
And Sanchez has become an expensive liability at Manchester United having failed to make any sort of impact at Old Trafford over the past 18 months.
The Sunday Times are reporting both clubs may be willing to allow both players to leave on free transfers this summer just to get both men off the wage bill.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not see the Chile international in his long-term plans and, at 30 years of age and on £500,000-a-week, it is clear to see why the club would sanction a move.

As they did with Wayne Rooney when he rejoined Everton, the Red Devils may well write-off any fee – even offering to pay some of his wages just to get him away from Old Trafford.
Inter Milan are reportedly interested, but money appears to be the main stumbling block. And Bale is experiencing similar difficulties.
Tottenham Hotspur have been offered the chance to take the 29-year-old back on loan, but even a subsidised deal would cripple the club’s strict wage policy.
