Who will replace Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid manager?

Zinedine Zidane leaves Real Madrid just days after leading club to third successive Champions League victory

Gareth Bale was the only member of Real Madrid's squad who did not send a tribute to Zinedine Zidane on social media after the Frenchman stepped down as manager.

Pochettino, 46, only signed a new contract with Spurs to 2023 last week, so Real would have to pay a big premium if they want to appoint him.

It will cost Real Madrid £42.5million in compensation if they want to buy Mauricio Pochettino out of his contract at Tottenham Hotspur, reports the Times.

"I live in the present, that is the most important thing. I enjoy what is happening and what has to be, will be", he told Spanish newspaper AS. For me and for everybody, I think the moment to change has arrived.

That's why I chose to take this decision.

The Sun say former Paris St-Germain boss Blanc is now in the frame because Chelsea have got cold feet over Maurizio Sarri, who had been touted as the favourite to replace Conte.

"I'm working very comfortably at Tottenham and it's my obligation to focus on that".

Zidane won nine titles as Madrid's coach, including three Champions League, one Spanish League, one Spanish Super Cup, two UEFA Super Cups and two Club World Cups.

The former Espanyol and Southampton boss has done an excellent job with Spurs since taking over in 2014, leading them to three consecutive top-three finishes in the Premier League, although he has yet to win any silverware.

Zidane was considered one of the all-time greats as a player, his mixture of sublime skill wrapped up in a muscular package driving France to victory in the 1998 World Cup on home soil.

There have been constant rumours at Chelsea FC suggesting that Conte is not happy with his situation at Stamford Bridge, with the Italian having been widely tipped to leave the club after two years in charge. A year later he led Real to their first European Cup and La Liga double in 59 years.
