Raul Bravo says Real Madrid would survive if David Beckham moved on.
Raul Bravo claims no one player is bigger than the club, following reports David Beckham could leave the Bernabeu in the summer.
Beckham has been a major success in the Spanish capital since his arrival in 2003, with the midfielder a major on and off-field draw.
The former Manchester United man is in the final year of his contract and although the two parties are talking over a new deal, reports suggest he could head for pastures new.
Beckham's departure would leave Real with a void to fill, but Bravo feels the club would make a seamless transition.
"I can picture a Madrid without Beckham, Raul, or Ronaldo," Bravo told the club's official website.
"No-one talks about those who aren't here anymore, like Figo. I would get used to it."
Despite suggesting Beckham is dispensable, Bravo would like to see the former England captain remain at Real.
"I don't really know what the club's economic situation is like, but if they lose Beckham, it would be for sporting reasons," he added.
"He's a great player and I think he deserves to stay on."
