It looks like Real Madrid’s rebuilding process is going to start this summer and the club won’t only buy a bunch of players but will get rid of many of them. Just like any of these processes, sad and shocking departures will take place when this begins to happen and nobody is sure about the future of the club or its player.
Perhaps some of these names will be hateful in the eyes of many, there will be others who are going to make people happy as soon as they leave. If you are one of those wondering which player will leave your favorite club or who can become a good buy for your team, here are five Real Madrid players that will leave Los Blancos this next summer.
The Welsh superstar could never succeed at Santiago Bernabeu, struggling with injuries and position troubles in the White House. Everybody expected him to become the new leader of the team after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, but Bale hasn’t succeeded doing so, which made fans say they had enough of former Spurs player.
Bale has been linked to several clubs in the last months and he won’t have any problem finding a new team to display the best of his game. Manchester United and Bayern look like the best options for him right now, but only time will tell where he ends playing.
The French striker was really good during the first years of his stint at Santiago Bernabeu, but as the years came by, the Cat started to lose his shape and the love of the fans with it. Many people believe Cristiano Ronaldo was the only reason Benzema stayed in Madrid, but now that CR7 is gone, the Frenchman is very likely to have a similar fate.
Albeit he hasn’t delivered for Madrid as he did in the first years at the White House, Benzema can still be a good addition for any team that has the chance to get him. Perhaps sharing touches with so many stars wasn’t the best thing for him, but if he finds a team that provides him with assists, he still can have a good career.
Toni Kroos was one of the best buys of Real Madrid in the last five years and Toni was considered one of the best midfielders in the world after his landing to Spain, even though he left Bayern Munich with no so much happiness. However, Kroos stood up and made sure to become an important asset in Valdevebas.
Sadly for him, everything comes to an end and his time with Madrid seems to be coming to its ending. Toni’s level has decreased in the last months; he was hardly criticized even with his national side after they failed to thrive in the last World Cup and that critics have followed him to his club, where he doesn’t look like he’s going to be playing more time. Paris Saint-Germain has surfaced as a potential bidder for the German, so now we have to wait to see what’s next for him.
This campaign has been anything but happy to Spanish attacking-midfielder Isco Alarcon, who saw how his role in Madrid was decreasing as the weeks came by with both Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari as Los Blancos bosses. At some point, Isco was just some guy on the bench and not one of the most important players the team had in the last three terms.
Now with Zidane, he seems to be recovering his good manners, but that doesn’t assure him a spot in Real Madrid’s squad; his departure from Spain is imminent according to many and the club appears to be showing the Spaniard trying to catch a potential buyer for Isco. He was set to become great in Real Madrid, but now his career will continue somewhere else.
Asensio was seeing as a very prominent youngster when he made his debut with Real Madrid’s first team and he made sure to live up to expectations; however, just like Isco, Asensio started to get fewer and fewer calls to play either as a starter or a replacement. Luckily for him, when he had a chance to play, he did great and almost every time he delivered for the club.
Now Asensio is followed by some of the best teams in Europe with Bayern -curiously- reportedly set to make an over €100 million offer to take the Spaniard and make him the leader of their offense. Marco is still young, has talent and capacity, he only needs a chance to demonstrate that he can be very important no matter where he plays.
