Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is expected to leave the club at the end of the season, and the La Liga outfit are already looking at potential replacements.
According to reports, Real Madrid are eyeing up moves for the Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti, and the former Juventus manager Max Allegri is under consideration as well.
The report further states that former Real Madrid striker Raul is also a candidate to replace Zidane after enjoying success with the clubs’ youth team.
Apparently, Zidane wants a break from the challenge of managing an elite European club, and he will make a final decision on his future after the 23rd of May.
Real Madrid play their final League game against Villarreal on the 23rd, and it will be interesting to see what the Frenchman decides after that.
He could still lead the Spanish outfit to the League title this season, but Atletico Madrid certainly have the advantage in the title race.
Carlo Ancelotti has done an impressive job at Everton, and it will be interesting to see if the Premier League outfit are willing to release him if Real Madrid come calling.
The Italian has managed the Spanish club before, and he helped them win the coveted La Decima.
Meanwhile, Allegri also guided Juventus to a Champions League final during his time with the Italian club, and he is considered as one of the finest tacticians in the game.
Raul would be an unproven appointment, and a club of Real Madrid statured should not be taking risks like that just yet.
