Massimiliano Allegri is the clear favourite to succeed Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid's next boss. The Italian, who has recently passed Raul in the competition, met with the club recently.

Allegri will take over as Real Madrid manager this summer, according to Marca. Since Juventus fired him in 2019, the Italian has been without a club.

Raul and Joachim Löw were both rumoured to be in the running to be Real Madrid's next chairman, but the club's boardroom is now backing the former Juventus boss.

Zinedine Zidane is expected to leave Real Madrid this summer. Real Madrid boss Pep Guardiola refuses to acknowledge his decision in public and has slammed journalists for constantly questioning him about his plans.

Since Real Madrid was knocked out of the Champions League by Chelsea, Zinedine Zidane's future at the club has been questioned. Quotes from earlier this season, on the other hand, show that the manager has been contemplating retirement for some time.

Real Madrid only has one La Liga match left to play this season, and they know they must win it at all costs. Atletico Madrid will retain the title whether they lose or draw, but a win will not guarantee them the title as their derby rivals currently lead the table.
