Real Madrid’s season has failed to reach the heights of last campaign. However, they have made it to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League, a tough test awaits them in the form of German champions Bayern Munich, which means the possibility of them finishing the season without a trophy is very much likely.
Real Madrid clearly needs to make some changes to their squad and here are three players who must be pushed through the exit doors ahead of next season.
The 30-year-old Frenchman has been at the Santiago Bernabeu for nine years but the forward is currently enduring a lean campaign in front of goal. The French striker has managed just 9 goals in all competitions for the European and La Liga champions, including only 5 in the league. This is his worst scoring season since his debut campaign at the club.
Signed from Espanyol back in the summer of 2015, Kiko Casilla was expected to push Keylor Navas for the No.1 spot at Real Madrid but the one-time capped Spanish international hasn’t been able to make an impact. Since joining the reigning Spanish and European champions, Casilla has made just 41 appearances in all competitions in close to three years, in which he has conceded 46 goals.
The 21-year-old, who joined Madrid from Real Betis in the last summer but has struggled to nail down a place in the first-team only appearing 20 times for Zidane’s side in all competitions this term, scoring two goals in the process.
