Zinedine Zidane WILL walk away from Real Madrid at the end of the season even if they win the LaLiga title, according to reports.
Madrid are within two points of leaders Atletico Madrid heading into the final two games of the season.
However, Goal report that Zidane will walk away from the club at the end of the season and told the players in the dressing room following their 2-2 draw with Sevilla last weekend..
The Daily Mail claimed Zidane no longer feels he has the backing of club president Florentino Perez, although he maintains overwhelming support from his players.
This is despite the fact he could win a third league title this season, adding to his trio of Champions League crowns and becoming the first Madrid manager to retain LaLiga since 1989.
It is understood Zidane will become a target for Juventus or the French national team this summer, while Madrid legend Raul could be promoted from the youth set-up to replace him.
Former Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri has also been mentioned as a candidate to become the next man in charge at Madrid.
The news is not a result of the reported fallout between Zidane and club veteran Marcelo, who has been omitted from the squad for the Granada game.
It is claimed the Brazil defender spoke out against criticism from Zidane during a recent training session, but it is unlikely the 33-year-old, set to leave when his contract expires at the end of the season, would’ve impacted the manager’s decision to quit.
Marcelo has not been a regular this season due to the form of Ferland Mendy, while promising teenager Miguel Gutierrez has also featured at left-back on occasion.
There are suggestions Zidane could be persuaded to stay if the club decide to build around promising young talent such as Gutierrez, centre-back Victor Chust, midfielders Sergio Arribas and Antonio Blanco.
Madrid’s pursuit of France and Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe could also convince Zidane to stick around.
