Real Madrid are reportedly set to offload 10 players in the summer, including big names such as Eden Hazard, Raphael Varane, Gareth Bale, and Isco.

Los Blancos are also reportedly set to part ways with manager Zinedine Zidane at the end of the season, with Massimiliano Allegri and club legend Raul both linked with the position.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Madrid have a major rebuilding job on their hands, with the likes of Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Marcelo all in their 30s.

Along with the aforementioned names, Marco Asensio, Marcelo, Luka Jovic, Mariano Diaz, Borja Mayoral, and Dani Ceballos are also on the list of players the LaLiga giants will be looking to sell next month.

Madrid have been linked with Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe, and there's no doubt money from player sales will go towards funding a bid for the 21-year-old. However, club president Florentino Perez claimed after the collapse of the European Super League that clubs wouldn't be able to afford players like Mbappe and Erling Haaland without the financial backing of the now-disbanded Super League.

Perez told El Larguero: "In general, there will not be big transfers this summer. When money does not flow from the rich clubs to the poor clubs, everyone suffers." He added, "It's impossible to make signings like Mbappe and Haaland, in general, not just for Real Madrid, without the Super League. This is a pyramid, and the money runs down, there would be money for everyone."

Madrid have been linked with both Mbappe and Haaland since last summer and were contemplating making a move for Mbappe in the upcoming transfer window. Perez concluded, "If we don't sign Mbappe this summer, I don't think any fan will shoot himself in the head. They know we're doing our best, and if things don't happen, it's because they're impossible."
