Sportskeeda, citing Spanish outlet, Fichajes, suggested that Belgian winger, Hazard could be one of the first to leave.
The 31-year-old's contract runs until 2024, but Los Blancos is apparently keen to end the partnership at the end of this season.
The former Chelsea playmaker has failed to replicate the form that saw him become the best player at Stamford Bridge for several seasons.
The likes of Asensio and Diaz appear not to have a future at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium with their contracts coming expiring at the end of the current campaign.
The other stars who could leave Real Madrid this summer are Modric, Jesús Vallejo, Andriy Lunin, and Álvaro Odriozola.
