IIt is clear that real Madrid want to downsize their squad before next season, but move some of those who aren’t there Carlo Ancelotti‘s plans prove easier said than done. The Italian boss prefers to work with a smaller group of about 23 players from the first team and then calls on young people if necessary.
Currently Los Blancos have 28 A-players on their books after leaving Brahim diaz to the AC Milan.
However, some players are proving to be more difficult to move on and the situation at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu is slowly becoming worrying.
Here we look at some of the players who might be heading for the exit door Ancelotti‘s Cull, if the club can find a move for them.
Jovic wants to stay
Luka Jovic looked like an exit but the striker wants to stay and fight for a chance. However, the club still intends to continue the Serbs, but with AC Milan interested in a loan deal.
The 23-year-old, who cost 70 million euros two years ago, has been injured since last week, which makes any change difficult and makes it difficult for him to impress the new head coach.
Bale is undecided about his future
Gareth BaleThe future is very much in the air, aside from the likelihood that it is not real Madrid.
Ancelotti said he could play if motivated, but as a non-EU player, the Welshman has no place in the squad unless one of Eder Militao, Vinicius gold Rodrygo Leaves – and that assumes Takefusa kubo will be borrowed again.
Isco convinces in training
Isco is another one who would likely leave as the club wanted to get their pay off the books, but he was impressive Ancelotti in the preseason.
With his positive attitude towards the pre-season, the Spaniard could still get a second chance.
Dani Ceballos said MARCA that he had an equal chance to play under Ancelotti as below Zinedine Zidane.
If that turns out to be Ancelotti does not want to use him often, the midfielder would prefer another move. He will speak to the Italian about his future after his return from the Olympics.
Mariano and another summer of doubt
real Madrid tried to move Mariano Diaz to no avail last summer and it looks like it will be more this year.
The player has high wages and likes to stay at the club, even if he is not guaranteed many minutes.
Vallejo sees a door half open
Jesus Vallejo looked like the picture was half gone until Raphael VaraneHis departure became more likely, potentially opening up a spot for him on the squad.
He could be the fourth option as a central defender. But it is also possible that Ancelotti will like to rely on offspring like Victor chust in case of emergancy.
Risk available at the right price
Eden Hazard is no longer inviolable and real Madrid are open to serious offers for the Belgian.
However, the sale could prove difficult for financial reasons and because the 30-year-old is determined to prove himself in Spain.
