Marcelo 'among 3 stars' set to leave Real

World News

Real Madrid will reportedly allow three big-name stars to leave the club, including Marcelo. 

The Real hierarchy are said to be working on a number of contract-related matters as they have four players whose deals will run out at the end of this season, while they also want to extend a few of their star' deals, per Football Espana. 

Croatian midfielder Luka Modric is one of the four players whose contract is set to expire in June, but the 36-year-old is said to be the only one of the quadruplet the club is willing to keep, while the other three will reportedly be allowed to depart. 

Scroll through the gallery above to see the Real stars whose contracts will reportedly not be renewed, as well as some other players who've been linked with an exit from Los Blancos.

Modric remains an important member of the team, and it is understood that Los Blancos are already working on a new deal for the midfielder. 

Following his Man of the Match performance in the Spanish Super Cup final against Athletic Club on Sunday, the former Tottenham Hotspur playmaker revealed he was confident of penning a new contract with the Spanish giants.

"I have a good relationship with the club and I hope to continue like this," he said, per 90min 

"I'm sure we'll reach an agreement and do what we think is best for both of us." 

Meanwhile, Marcelo, Gareth Bale, and Isco's deals will reportedly not be renewed, with the latter recently being linked with a shock move to rivals FC Barcelona. 

Isco has recorded just 10 appearances for Real in this campaign, and is seemingly out of favour under coach Carlo Ancelotti. According to El Chiringuito, the 29-year-old has agreed a deal in principle with the Blaugrana. 

Left-back Marcelo reached an incredible milestone on Sunday, with Real's Spanish Super Cup win ensuring that the fullback is now tied with club legend Francisco Gento – who sadly passed away on Tuesday this week – as the player with the most trophies for Real with 23 titles. He, too, will be allowed to leave, though, per Football Espana.

Bale is another who has not featured much under Ancelotti this season, only three times in LaLiga in fact, although his season has been hampered by injuries and a positive case of Covid-19. He seemingly remains set for an exit from the club.
