Santiago Solari has since been named manager, having been in charge of Real Madrid B side with the reserve team and has assisted to steady the ship, guiding the Los Blancos to back-to-back wins in Spanish La Liga and Spanish Copa del Rey.
As per the Daily Mail, the former Real Madrid midfielder may now keep the first team job until next campaign as Club President Fiorentino Perez has made bringing in South American tactician Pochettino his prime transfer target in the summer.
The three time back-to-back Champions league winners under French tactician and former Real Madrid midfielder Zinedane Zidane will not strike a deal with North London club Tottenham Hotspur next week, it is claimed, meaning that the Spanish La Liga stragglers will need to wait until the conclusion of the 2018/19 campaign before discussing terms.
The Red Devils tactician, Portuguese Jose Mourinho is also a shock speculated candidate to succeed the former Spain national Team manger, about five years after leaving Madrid for former side Chelsea, while former Italy and Chelsea head coach Italian tactician Antonio Conte and Jardim have been heavily tipped as potential candidates to take over the managerial position at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu.
