Marco Asensio, Dani Ceballos and others Takefusa Kubo are among the most prominent names on Real Madrid’s undesirables list.
Asensio, Ceballos and Kubo will be joined by Jesus Vallejo, Mariano Diaz, Borja Mayoral, Alvaro Odriozola and Reinier Jesus as the European champions look to vacate their expanded squad ahead of the new season.
This comes just months later The whites secured a record-breaking 14th place Champions League and 35 league titles, and they’ve already seen several big names leave the Santiago Bernabeu this window.
Marco Asensio made 235 appearances for Real Madrid and was involved in five Champions League victories
Asensio is perhaps the most surprising name on the list after making 235 appearances for Los Blancos, but according to reports from brandhe will not renew his current contract with the club.
He has previously been open about his lack of playing time and while Real have given no assurances that things would change for him next season, they won’t put a stop to a potential exit this summer before he next year departs for free.
He said: “I have one year left on my contract and I have three options. We’ll talk after the international break.”

Mariano Diaz and Jesus Vallejo will leave, although the latter was impressive against Manchester City
Former Arsenal loanee Ceballos is in a similar position to Asensio and has failed to secure a starting role in Real’s line-up since returning from a two-year stint at the Emirates.
He is believed to favor a move to youth club Real Betis but any deal would require him to lower his steep salary demands.
Kubo – once branded as the Japanese Messi – is another Real starlet who doesn’t live up to the hype and is now on the verge of a move to Real Sociedad, while Diaz awaits offers for the current season knowing he can probably will not play will do.
Reiner Jesus, 20, will be made available for a club move this summer window
Borja Mayoral has been on loan for several periods, most notably at Roma last season
Alvaro Odriozola has yet to attract interest from other clubs
In the event the other players are shown the door, it’s probably a question of taking the club forward without deadweight holding them back and with high-profile departures already this summer it’s clear Carlo Ancelotti is looking to build a new one , fresher squad.
Vallejo and Odriozola have been made available for transfers to other clubs, while Reinier has no place in the current squad and is encouraged to play elsewhere.
Mayoral, who recently returned from his loan spell at Jose Mourinho’s Roma, has offers to consider from La Liga clubs Getafe and Celta Vigo and as such is already halfway out the door.
Real Madrid have already parted ways with three of their longest-serving players: Gareth Bale, who is moving to LAFC, free agent Isco and club captain Marcelo, who is leaving after 15 years and five Champions League titles.
