- The likes of Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, James Rodriguez and Lucas Vazquez are out of contracts in 2021.
- Madrid are yet to offer them extensions at the Bernabeu.
- It's wise to give young players a chance but the ideal thing for the Whites is to blend the youth with more experienced players, according to Predrag Mijatovic.
Former Real Madrid striker Predrag Mijatovic has advised Zinedine Zidane to blend his youngsters with more experienced players so that the Whites can go back to the top.
"You have to think about the future, but the fans have to remember what the old guard have achieved," he told Radio MARCA.
"The ideal thing for Real Madrid is a blend between older and younger [players]. It's good to think about the future, but only thinking about young players is a mistake.
"You have to have the likes of Ramos and Modric to accompany the young players."
The likes of Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, James Rodriguez and Lucas Vazquez are out of respective contracts in 2021. As Madrid are yet to offer them extensions at the Bernabeu, they could be leaving the club this summer.
