Breaking: Zidane set to return as Real Madrid Manager

After resigning from Real Madrid in May last year, Zinedine Zidane is set to return as the club’s manager.

Multiple media reports said on Monday that the Algerian-born ex-French player may return following the shambolic performance of the club in both club and continental championships.

Santiago Solari has been in charge of the club after Zinedine voluntarily left last year after winning the 2018 Champions League title, the fifth for the club.

Many believe the exit of Zinedane triggered the club’s star player, Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Madrid for Juventus July last year.

If he is indeed going to take over, Zidane will look to finish out the season strong, rebuild the roster in the summer with attacking talent and aim to compete for the European crown against next season. Potential targets to sign are likely Chelsea's Eden Hazard, PSG's Neymar, Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi and Tottenham's Christian Eriksen.
