There are many unknowns that Zinedine Zidane will have to do his best to sort out in what promises to be a testing summer for the Real Madrid coach.
Los Blancos will need Zidane to be a leader more than ever, but it does seem that he has an idea of what he wants and how he is going to transform the team.
These are the doubts, unknown quantities and questions that await the Frenchman this summer.
1. Player sales
Players like Marcos Llorente, Mateo Kovacic, Sergio Reguilon, Martin Odegaard and Theo Hernandez have already gone, yet others will have to leave too, players like Nacho or Jesus Vallejo or Lucas Vazquez.
It could even be that Isco leaves, as Pep Guardiola is a known fan of him.
2. Gareth Bale
He should go, but he wants to stay.
For the time being, Zidane has him in the squad, although he scratched him from his plans long ago.
3. Paul Pogba
This is the signing would be the cherry on top and Zidane would have wanted him on day one, but it wasn't possible.
Pogba wants to play for Real Madrid and at least Manchester United are open to negotiating.
4. The system
Over and above personnel, the big unknown is how Real Madrid will play.
With Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic already secured and with Pogba still sought after, the formation could easily be changeable in-game, with a 4-3-3, 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1 as options.
5. Physical preparation
Gregory Dupont will head up physical preparation for the first team.
He was in Didier Deschamps' camp for the French national team who conquered the world.
Former fitness coach Antonio Pintus has left for Inter.
6. Starting goalkeeper
Zidane has said that Thibault Courtois should be the number one, but Keylor Navas could still be in the picture and kept close by.
Luca Zidane may be loaned out, solidifying Navas' place as the number two.
This has always been Marcelo's position and, in spite of his disappointing season, Zidane still has confidence in him.
Reguilon has gone, but Real Madrid have now got Ferland Mendy to count on in that position too.
With Hazard coming in on the left, Zidane may put the Brazilian on the right and this would promote competition with Marco Asensio.
This could be his breakthrough season.
9. Rodrygo Goes and Takefusa Kubo
Much is expected of the young Brazilian player and Zidane wants him close by to keep tabs on his progress.
However, both he and Kubo will most likely start out with Raul at Castilla.
With an abundance of recruits already having arrived, Zidane will feel that he is better prepared to fight on all fronts, especially in LaLiga Santander and the Champions League.
The Frenchman wants to wrestle back the trophies that he has lost and a competitive squad full of quality will certainly help.
11. Squad numbers
The new recruits have all been presented without numbers as they await players leaving the club.
People have bought shirts with Hazard and No.7 on the back, but that is Mariano Diaz's number.
A lot of eyes will be on Bale's number No.11 if he does indeed leave.
12. Set pieces
Sergio Ramos is the specialist from the penalty spot, but now Hazard has arrived and was a highly successful penalty taker at Chelsea.
In terms of other set piece takers, there could be other battles to sort out as Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Isco, Marco Asensio and Pogba (if he joins) are all skilled dead ball specialists.
13. Zidane himself
It's a much steelier Zidane we've see recently in press conferences.
He has changed since his first chapter and perhaps he needs Los Blancos to change too, in order to be on a more prosperous path in the coming season.
