Saviola, set to be bombed out of Madrid

Javier Saviola has been put up for sale by Real Madrid amid reports of several interested sides, but he may have to lower his wage demands to secure a transfer.

The Argentine has stated that he wanted to stay at the Bernabeu and prove himself after a first season that saw him only given minimal chances to shine following a move from Barcelona lastsummer.

Madridis not impressed, however, and coach Bernd Schuster has instructed the board to find Saviola a new club before the players depart for pre-season training camp in Austria later this month.
