Real Madrid are undoubtedly one of the best teams in the world. The fact that they have won the Champions League three times in a row by dismantling any teams that attempt to block their path just showcases the supreme power they possess.

With a team as great as this, you would expect the squad to be filled to the brim with superstars. However, that's not the case - especially following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. To replace a player of that calibre, you would need to invest in two or three superb players to simultaneously strengthen the rest of the squad, but Real Madrid have neglected that plan of action.

Instead, Los Blancos have brought in 17-year-old Vinicius Jr for £38m from Flamengo this summer. Whether he's expected to eventually replace Ronaldo on the wing or not is yet to be decided, but the expectation that has fallen on his shoulders is a heavy burden to carry.

As for the rest of the Madrid squad, there's a lot of deadwood that needs to be offloaded before they embark on their next season. The following players are exactly the type of individuals they should move on.
