Newly-crowned European champions, Real Madrid, are in line to lose as many as seven first-team players this summer.
The imminent departure of the squad members comes just days after the La Liga giants were crowned this season's Champions League winners.
Carlo Ancelotti's men sunk Premier League heavyweights, Liverpool, 1-0 during the final of the competition staged in Paris on Saturday night, May 28.
Vinicius Jr's solitary goal in the second half of the clash marred with chaos and confusion was the only difference as Real Madrid were crowned Europe champions for the 14th time in their history.
Real Madrid facing mass exodus after Champions League glory
However, barely days after Real conquered Europe, the Spanish giants are staring at a mass exodus of players.
Mirror UK reports the majority of the players are out of contract, while others are looking to explore elsewhere.
Gareth Bale headlines the list of at least seven players on their way out, with the Welshman departing upon the expiration of his contract after a nine-year stay in the Spanish capital.
Marcelo and Isco are the other high-ranking squad members leaving the club, with the duo's contracts up in the air this summer.
Dani Ceballos and Mariano Diaz are also thought to be on the verge of exiting Real, with the former currently out of favour after his return to the club from Arsenal where he was on loan.
According to Marca, Real Madrid are desperate to offload the striker as he is unlikely to nail a starting role at the club.
