Interestingly, Real Madrid’s former supremo Ramon Calderon is reportedly claiming that the Galaticos are already aware who will step into the vacant post left by the Frenchman.
“Knowing him (Florentino Perez) well I think he knew a few weeks ago that Zidane would leave and already he’s made his mind up about the new coach.
“I don’t know who it will be but he will know and will have been in touch with someone.
“We know that he [Perez] offered the manager’s job to Wenger a few years ago but I don’t know if he feels the same now.
“It’s also known that he offered the position to [Joachim] Low, the coach of the German national team,” Calderon was quoted as saying on LoveSport radio.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has reportedly told Real Madrid chiefs that he will sell Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo if he becomes Los Blancos' new manager this summer.
After the departure of Frenchman Zinedine Zidane, German football manager Jurgen Klopp is said to be among the front-runners to take over at the Bernabeu. Zinedine Zidane's resignation came as a surprise to Real Madrid chiefs as he left after winning three consecutive Champions League title.
