Zinedine Zidane is set to return to the job he voluntarily resigned from 10 months ago. Speculations have it that the Frenchman is returning to Real Madrid to replace Santiago Solari, who was in charge for less than five months.
Zidane who was also a former midfielder for the club left last May after leading the club to a third straight Champions League trophy.
Real are currently third in La Liga, 12 points behind leaders Barcelona.
That 4-1 home defeat and 5-3 aggregate loss to the Dutch side was the final straw for Real president Florentino Perez.
Zidane stepped down following the Champions League final victory over Liverpool, and Julen Lopetegui was hired as his successor just before the World Cup where he had been due to lead Spain, who promptly sacked him.
Four and a half months later it was Real’s turn to fire him.
Reserve-team boss Solari came in as caretaker before being given a contractto 2021 on 13 November.
