There is absolute confidence at Real Madrid that Eden Hazard will be the first through the door this summer.
Real Madrid are about to enter a summer of change and there will be a significant shake-up of the squad.
Not only will there be signings, but there will also have to be some departures and there are as many as 13 players with their futures up in the air.
Here, we take a look at each of these cases and at the options for the players in question.
Real Madrid believe that Bale’s time at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu needs to come to an end and Zinedine Zidane is believed to share that viewpoint.
The problem, though, is that the Welshman has suggested through his representatives that he wants to stay and finish his contract.
There should be offers for him and Real Madrid are confident that he will end up going.
The key could be in having Florentino Perez, who has so frequently backed him and who has always shown great respect for the contracts signed with players, sit down and discuss the situation with the player.
It has been a tough season for Isco and the arrival of a player like Paul Pogba or Eden Hazard could make it difficult for him to stay.
The club expected more from the summer signing and now his future is in the hands of Zidane, who is believed to like the striker.
As one of the top performers of the season, the striker should be set for another year in the Spanish capital.
However, the potential signing of Hazard could make him reconsider his position.
The January signing will go out on loan for the 2019/20 season.
Zidane likes the 20-year-old, but Valverde wants to know that he’ll be given significant playing time.
The Uruguayan’s thirst for minutes could move him towards the exit door too.
