In order to replace current manager Carlo Ancelotti, who is anticipated to leave the club at the end of the season if Los Blancos’ season-ending results do not go their way, Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid is said to be lining up former manager Zinedine Zidane.

Madrid thinks about the future of Ancelotti.

Following Real Madrid’s lackluster performance in LaLiga, which allowed Barcelona to open an 11-point lead at the top of the standings, Ancelotti has been perched on the edge of the Santiago Bernabeu with one foot in the job and one foot out of it.

Although Ancelotti exacted revenge by eliminating the Blaugrana in the Copa del Rey semifinal, it is thought that, if Real Madrid is unsuccessful in retaining their UEFA Champions League title, not even a victory in the Spanish Cup will be able to save his job come the end of the campaign.

If Ancelotti departs, Zidane is the favorite to take over at Real Madrid.

Even though Los Blancos are in the UCL semifinals, they have made the decision to prepare for the possibility that they won’t be able to win a desired trophy this year by lining up former player and manager Zidane for a potential third stint with the club.

Real Madrid have already begun discussions with the three-time UEFA Champions League champion about a potential return, and they will advance those discussions if they become more disappointed with Ancelotti’s performances, according to a report by the French publication Foot Mercato.

Real Madrid will be hoping that Zidane can restore the hegemony that saw the team win three straight UEFA Champions League championships from 2016 to 2019 if he does decide to return.
