3 promising Real Madrid players who could leave in the summer
Real Madrid's winter could be summed up in a word- catastrophic. The Los Blancos have won just 11 of their 21 league matches this season. No way do they look like a side which has lifted consecutive Champions League trophies in the last couple of years.
Real's star XI has failed to provide an impressive performance so far, except the 7-1 thrashing of Deportivo. Despite the repeated failure of the players, Zidane has been reluctant to shuffle his pack. The Spanish Champions have a good nub of young talent which could be potential replacements for some ageing first-team stars.
The lack of game time for these youngsters could prove a matter of concern for Real. A substantial interest from Premier League clubs has already been seen for these youngsters. Here, we take a look at a list of players who could leave Bernabeu in the upcoming transfer window.
#1 Mateo Kovačić
Mateo Kovacic is a name that has been regularly featured among the Real Madrid substitutes. The 23-year-old is seen as one of the most talented midfielders in the game. Real had signed Kovacic from Inter Milan in 2015.
Despite being highly rated, Kovacic has managed just 17 appearances for the Los Blancos this season. The Croation is known for his brilliance on the ball. His ability to pick the ball up deep and push the opponent with his sprints is note-worthy.
The former Inter man has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer. Jose desperately needs a central midfielder to replace the retiring Michael Carrick. Kovacic would tick all the squares for United and would be a quality addition alongside Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.
