It looks like Real Madrid's roster is going to look quite different at the start of next season, as Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Perez are currently orchestrating a major overhaul.
Naturally, that means several players are going to be forced out of the team in order to make room for newcomers, with Zidane leaving the door wide open for three of the team's young stars to leave in the summer.
The Frenchman has been in charge of the team for the last six games since being re-appointed as Real Madrid's boss, and while it may still be quite early to tell, it looks like he's already made it clear that he's not counting on Marcos Llorente, Dani Ceballos, and Sergio Reguilon for the time being.
Obviously, the three of them being so young and talented, they're most likely heading out the door in the summer, as reported by Spanish outlet Marca.
Llorente thrived under Santiago Solari's tutelage and even won the battle against Casemiro for most of the season, but he's barely seen any playing time at all with Zidane.
Ceballos' situation has been quite similar, as he hasn't been featured in Madrid's last four outings, and Zizou wasn't quite high on him during his first stint in charge of Los Blancos either.
Reguilon was exceeding all expectations and his recent surge fueled the rumors about a potential Marcelo summer exit to Juventus, but Zidane is a huge fan of the Brazilian and he trusts him to go back to his former self in no time, making it clear that the left-back position is his to lose.
Perhaps he still has a future at Santiago Bernabeu, but he's going to find it quite tough to convince Zidane to turn his back on one of his go-to-guys during his successful first tenure as the team's boss.
