Zinedine Zidane has assembled a great squad, which helped him become the first coach to defend the UEFA Champions League title last season.
However, it seems Los Blancos are prepared to reshuffle their team further in this window. First out was Rodriguez, who joined Bayern Munich on a two-year loan deal.
Alvaro Morata could reportedly be the next player through the exit door after talks between Real and Chelsea reportedly reached an advanced stage, according to Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
ESPN's Dermot Corrigan has claimed that Mateo Kovacic and Danilo could also be sold – the former has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, while the latter is reportedly close to joining Manchester City.
After the success story of Marco Asensio, who scored in four competitions, including the UEFA Champions League, for Los Blancos in 2016/17, Zidane reportedly wants to give more young players a chance.
As a consequence, Theo Hernandez joined from crosstown rivals Atletico Madrid and Dani Ceballos was bought from Real Betis.
These two youngsters, as well as Jesus Vallejo, who has returned from a loan at Eintracht Frankfurt, will reportedly be integrated into Zidane's squad, while Borja Mayoral and Marcos Llorente could both be loaned out again.
