Real Madrid ‘make contact’ with ex-Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as they line-up replacement for under-fire Zidane

REAL MADRID have reportedly made contact with Mauricio Pochettino as they line up a potential replacement for Zinedine Zidane.

Spanish outlet El Transistor claim that Los Blancos have reached out to the former Tottenham boss following the continued turmoil at the club.


The report adds that Madrid are adamant that Zidane's accomplishments at the Santiago Bernabeu will stop him from getting the sack.

Yet it is said many fear the Frenchman could voluntarily walk as he did back in 2018 should Madrid's on-field struggles continue.

Madrid chief Zidane is already under intense pressure just six games into the new season ahead of the huge clash against Barcelona.

Los Blancos slumped to a 3-2 defeat in their Champions League opener against a Shakhtar Donetsk side missing TEN players on Wednesday.

That performance came four days after they suffered a first domestic loss of the season as they fell 1-0 to LaLiga new boys Cadiz last weekend.

Both defeats came on home turf.

SunSport previously reported that Madrid were considering both Pochettino and club legend Raul as their next manager should Zidane leave.

Poch has been without a team since he was axed by Spurs last November.

The Argentine has also been linked with taking over Manchester United if they decide to get rid of boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Yet the 48-year-old stated last year how he wants to be in charge of Los Blancos at one point in his career.

And Pochettino claimed again last month that it was 'his dream' to manage Real.
