Real Madrid wants to reduce the squad
Real Madrid are interested in reducing their first team.
While Los Blancos know they cannot force any of the players to leave, they will make it clear their best option is to continue their careers elsewhere, such as Luka Jovic, who joined Fiorentina.
Isco, Gareth Bale and Marcelo ended their contracts on June 30, after a season in which the three players rarely saw the field, reports Rhewal.
With seven players out of contract next summer, Real Madrid are hoping the aforementioned three can lead by example.
Dani Ceballos and Marco Asensio want regular playing time, something that could prove difficult at Madrid in 2022/23, while Mariano and Borja Mayoral have been told their services are no longer required.
Kroos, Nacho and Lunin are the other three whose contracts are expiring, but the goalkeeper has already started negotiations for contract renewal and with the defender they hope to reach a new agreement soon.
The German, as reported by MARCA, refused to renew last May as he would prefer to wait and see his physical response and the role he plays before saying yes. /Express newspaper/
