Zinedine Zidane

After missing out on the La Liga title this season, Zinedine Zidane has decided to leave Real Madrid with immediate effect. The news comes as no surprise with the Frenchman’s departure rumoured all throughout the season. It leaves Madrid manger-less and in the midst of a potential legal battle against UEFA following their European Super League antics.

That leaves both Antonio Conte and Zidane available this summer for clubs to take on board. The likes of Tottenham Hotspur and potentially Juventus will be watching eagle eyed. The three time Champions League winner has the portfolio to walk into every club in the world.

Unfortunately for Spurs, they are not able to match his credentials; they don’t have enough history to attract a manager of such worth as it stands- making this summer an interesting one.

What Next for Real Madrid?

As for Real Madrid, the search for a new manager will commence over the summer. Options such as Massimiliano Allegri will attract Perez. The former Juventus man has been out of a job since 2019, perhaps waiting a big opportunity such as Madrid. In regards to top managers currently available, there are no better than Allegri.

He ticks the box for experience, expertise and a portfolio of plenty of trophies won. He may well top the list of candidates in Spain. Either way, whoever enters the doors of the Bernabeu this summer will have some job on their hands.

without Zidane, Madrid have struggled in the past. In fact, if you cast your minds back a few years, you’ll see just how much the Spanish side struggled without him, suffering under Julen Lopetegui. Perez, the man who has the job to choose the next man in charge, will be desperate to avoid the same mistake this time around.
