In a bid to rebuild his team, Real manager Zidane has already offloaded seven players, including his own son, but is reportedly looking to get rid of seven more by the time the transfer window closes. 

The Frenchman has brought in a host of big-name signings, including Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic, as he looks to challenge on all fronts next season and has deemed a number of players surplus to requirements. 

Zidane is also reportedly interested in completing mega-money deal for Paul Pogba which means Real need to recover a figure of around €200 (R3.1 billion) if they are to balance their books.

According to Marca, third-choice ‘keeper Andriy Lunin is set for a short-term exit while defender Jesus Vallejo is closing in on a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Academy graduates Lucas Vasquez and Borja Mayoral have also been placed on the transfer list alongside Mariano Diaz, who assumed Cristiano Ronaldo’s number 7 jersey last season. 

The most notable names on Zidane’s chopping block are those of Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez who have both fallen out of favour with their manager. Rodriguez is reportedly nearing a move to Italian side Napoli while Bale has been linked with a mega-money to China.
