Reports have it that Carlo Ancelotti will leave his post as Real Madrid manager at the end of the season to take over as Brazil national team manager.

The Italian is in the final year of his contract with the club, and has now been linked with an exit.

There have been talks of who should replace Ancelotti, who has done well over the years.

Former Galactico Guti didn’t hesitate to name club legend Zinedine Zidane as the perfect man to take over from Ancelotti.

He said: “The perfect coach for Madrid is [Zinedine] Zidane. I mean, why not? Why shouldn’t he have a third spell at the club? There are coaches who stay at the club for a long time and go through many different stages, because they are the right, again, why not?”

Zidane has had two spells as Real Madrid manager, and has been without a job since leaving the club in 2021.
