Real Madrid could be spending as much as £350m in the 2022 summer transfer window, according to Goal.
It is claimed that Real Madrid will have £350m available to spend on new faces in the coming transfer window as Los Blancos benefit from their European success and the departure of several high earners.
Marcelo, Gareth Bale and Isco are all out of contract, freeing up roughly £75m from the overall wage bill in Madrid.
Madrid’s total earnings for the campaign come to £113m, of which £30m is yet to be included in the team’s budget as Real only estimated that they would reach the last 16 of the Champions League, not win the entire competition.
As well as the above two revenue sources, the possible sales of Jesus Vallejo, Marcos Asensio, Dani Ceballos, Luka Jovic and Mariano would provide a further boost to the transfer budget and decrease Madrid’s wage bill.
Furthermore, the Spanish champions are in line for a £310m pay-off as part of their partnership with Legends and Sixth Street to administrate the remodelled Santiago Bernabeu’s commercial interests.

So who will Real Madrid sign with all this extra cash?
Aurelien Tchouameni of AS Monaco looks set to join Real Madrid this summer, with a fee of around €85m being touted as the sum the French side want.
Elsewhere, it was well know that Madrid wanted to sign Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer. However, the Frenchman has since agreed a new deal with PSG, putting an end to that move for the time being.
But with Mbappe staying in Paris, perhaps Real will need to look elsewhere for some reinforcements in their forward line this summer?
