According to Marca, the Frenchman has started having private chats with his squad to inform the players about their future at Santiago Bernabeu.
The Spanish publication claim, Gareth Bale, Marcos Llorente and Dani Ceballos were all told that the coach is not planning with them for next season.
Bale was reportedly the first to be told and the news coincide with the Welshman’s dropping from Los Blancos match-day squad against Villarreal on Sunday.
It looks like the relationship between the two is broken and Real are now keen on offloading their most expensive signing in history.
Llorente, who came through the club’s academy and was on loan at Alaves in 2016/17, has only featured twice since Zidane’s return, while Ceballos has made just three appearances in the same period.
The 22-year-old was bought from Real Betis in 2017 after being named Player of the Tournament at the U21 UEFA European Championship.
However, both players have seemingly not lived up to expectations and were reportedly already on the Zidane’s axe-list before he himself resigned at the end of last season.
Marcelo is believed to be the fourth player, the Los Blancos coach has already called into his office, but it seems the Brazilian remains in Zidane’s plans.
