9 players Zidane has at the exit door

10 Aug 2020

Real Madrid’s LaLiga title victory was a major achievement for Zinedine Zidane at a time when such honors have been somewhat fewer and far between in comparison to recent Champions League successes.

But bowing out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage for the second year in a row has been a major embarrassment for the most successful club in the competition’s history. Following a limp defeat by Manchester City at the Etihad last week, the board and manager will no doubt be discussing certain players the club may look to unload before the start of next season, where repeated failure in Europe for a third year running will be as much unforgivable as inconceivable.

Below, we list nine players who are in the firing line, starting with none other than the Spanish capital’s most unpopular Welshman.

Gareth Bale

James Rodriguez

Luka Jovic


Mariano Díaz

Brahim Díaz

Lucas Vazquez
