What future for Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid? According to the latest information from the Spanish press, the 98 world champion will remain at the helm of Casa Blanca.
Although Zinedine Zidane has a contract with the Bernabeu until 2022, Real’s hierarchy intended to assess their position this summer, with former Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino being presented as a potential replacement.
However, according to information from the Spanish daily AS, the coronavirus pandemic prompted the La Liga club to quickly take a decision in terms of management. The latter would have decided to keep the French technician for an additional season.

Bad news for Juventus Turin, which is already preparing for the arrival of the triple winner of the Champions League, in cold with the president of Merengues, Florentino Peréz.
Indeed, the Old Lady would like to hire the services of her former player and would have already prepared an annual contract of up to three years and 8 million euros per year, which would make him the best paid coach in the history of the club in front of Massimiliano Allegri.
As a reminder, Real was two points behind the leader of Barcelona after 27 games played before the La Liga was suspended due to the consequent spread of the Covid-19.
Zidane’s team is currently in quarantine after one of the staff was positive at Covid-19.
