Real Madrid striker Roberto Soldado appears to be on his way out of the the Santiago Bernabeu this summer as he looks to secure more playing time elsewhere. The most likely club he would move to seems to be the Portuguese giants Benfica.

Soldado is a graduate of the Real Madrid youth academy and was drafted into the first team in th 2007-2008 season. But he had limited playing time under coach Bernd Schuster and is therefore frsutrated and wants to leave Real.

Benfica have already approached Real Madrid pertaining to the availability of the young Spanish striker but according to reports emerging from Spain have been told that they would have to pay no less than £7 million for the player.

Along with Benfica, Italian side Sampdoria too are monitoring the situation and have expressed eagerness to sign Roberto Soldado this summer.
