Real Madrid are looking to get rid of their deadwood this summer and Zidane has picked nine players who could be on their way out.
As per reports, Gareth Bale, Nacho, Isco, Marcelo, James Rodriguez, Luka Jovic, Brahim Diaz, Mariano Diaz and Lucas Vazquez are considered as expendables at the Spanish club.
Bale has fallen out of favour at Santiago Bernabeu for a while now and Zidane is unlikely to hand him playing time next season. He has been on the sidelines for the majority of this past season and he needs to leave in order to play more often.
As far as Vazquez and Mariano are concerned, they are simply not good enough for a club of Real Madrid’s stature and it is no surprise that Los Blancos want to get rid.
Isco has been linked with a move away for a while now and it is believed that Pirlo could take him to Juventus this summer.
Luka Jovic arrived with massive expectations last summer but he has struggled for game time with Benzema in red hot form. Perhaps a loan move would be ideal for him.
James Rodriguez is in a similar situation to that of Bale. He is unwanted at the club and he was even loaned out to Bayern. He has been linked with Atletico Madrid and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
Brahim Diaz is a talented youngster but he needs to play more often to achieve his potential. Real Madrid cannot provide him with that platform and a move would be good for his career.
Meanwhile, Marcelo is a top class player but he will be past his peak soon. His replacement is already at the club in the form of Ferland Mendy and he could be moved on.
