Zinedine Zidane is set to make a sensational return as Real Madrid manager, according to reports in Spain.
The Frenchman resigned at the Bernabeu at the end of last season following a third successive Champions League title.
But the club has since struggled, with Julen Lopetegui fired after a disastrous start to the season and Santiago Solari unable to navigate Los Blancos past the last 16 in Europe, with Ajax handing them a humiliating exit.
Zidane has taken a sabbatical from the game but has persistently been linked with a return, with Manchester United and Juventus also strongly linked.
La Sexta on El Chiringuito de Jugones have reported Zidane will be announced as the next permanent manager of Real Madrid and that it could be announced officially in the coming days.
Zidane could even take training on Tuesday, the report adds.
