Real Madrid has lost 4 and drawn 5 matches in La Liga this season with 18 matches yet to be played.

Real Madrid are having an unacceptable season this winter.

The Spanish giants currently sit 4th in the La Liga table trailing rivals FC Barcelona by 19 points and crashing out of Copa Del Rey in the quarterfinals.

The only ray of hope left for the struggling squad, is the UEFA Champions League, in which they face PSG in the Round-of-16.

Manager Zinedine Zidane was criticised earlier in the summer of 2017 and January 2018 for not making any crucial signings.

Zidane's spell in the Spanish capital appears to be coming to an end as his style of play is not being greeted with praise anymore by the Bernabeu faithful.

Real could be set for a massive squad revamp in the summer. We take a look at the players that could be leaving the Spanish heavyweights at the end of the season.

#1 Cristiano Ronaldo

The Portuguese' has been struggling this season to find the back of the net.

While some may not agree with the idea, reports in Spain are already predicting Ronaldo's departure with names like Harry Kane, Eden Hazard or Neymar expected to fill the void of arguably the best player in the world.

Ronaldo is in the closing stages of his career. The pace with which he used to tear into opposing defenses has been reduced and his effectiveness has consequently dropped.

There are not many players who can replace the current Ballon d'Or holder but a change is believed to happen in the summer. If any such move happens, Manchester United would be the most likely destination for the 32-year-old.
