Real Madrid has not had an easy season. Their rivals Atlético are leading the league in fashion way with a large advantage over the rest of the table. The Merengues’ coach Zinedine Zidane has been largely discussed by the fans and the media, and even other names have been tipped as his replacement. Now, he seems to look for revenge in some players.
As per local newspaper El Español, Zidane has a list of seven players which he will discard soon to redesign the squad – of course in case he stays in the club. In his last press conference, he has had an outburst complaining that he is about to leave “every day”. It’s completely visible his relationship with the club is likely to come to an end soon.
The seven names are Éder Militao, Nacho Fernández, Marcelo, Álvaro Odriozola, Isco Alarcón, Mariano Díaz and Lucas Vázquez. None of them are regular starters in the Xi. Why? Not only because of being underperforming, but also because they would have lost their trust in Zidane himself. Despite that, Vázquez is rumored to have a contract renewal offer in his hands.
Apart from them, El Español added that Vinicius Junior could join the list: he was apparently set to be the exchange player the club needs to afford Kylian Mbappé’s signing. The French star from PSG sees his contract ending in 2022, and lots of clubs, including Real Madrid, are interested in signing him in the summer transfer market.
