Italian Serie A giants Juventus’ former manager Massimiliano Allegri and English Premier League outfit Manchester United’s former manager Jose Mourinho are the top candidates to replace Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid manager, El Mundo, cited by Calciomercato.com, is reporting.
The Frenchman is under increasing pressure after Real suffered a shocking 1-0 defeat to recently promoted side Mallorca on Saturday.
As per the latest development, Zidane’s fate will be decided if Los Blancos do not secure a positive result in their next UEFA Champions League tie against Turkish side Galatasaray.
Real are struggling in Europe’s elite competition where they just have one point from two group matches.
Therefore, any result other than a win on Wednesday might prove to be the final nail in the coffin for Zidane’s second tenure at the club as a manager.
The report further stated that Allegri and Mourinho, both of whom are currently jobless, are the top two candidates to replace Zidane at the Santiago Bernabéu.
