One of the main candidates to replace the fled Zinedine Zidane on the bench of the Real Madrid, Massimiliano Allegri, has been discarded.
The Juventus has confirmed the return to the bench of the Italian, who was already in charge of the black and white team in a glorious time: five Scudettos, four doubles with the Coppa Italia, and two Italian Super Cups, in addition to two finals of Champions League in three seasons, both lost and one of them precisely against Zidane’s Madrid.
Thus an option falls, which was one of the great favorites, for a Florentino Pérez you have fewer options each time. The president of Real Madrid has convened his Board of Directors in Valdebebas this Friday to deal with, in a monographic way, the most urgent matter: who should be the coach of Real Madrid from now on.
The meeting lasted almost two hours and almost all the executives were present, especially those from Pérez’s hard core. With Jose Angel Sanchez, general director of the club, in front, have debated between the different options that they have on the table.
The candidacy of Mauricio Pochettino has won integers in the last hours, but Florentino does not want to hinder his relations (already complicated by the Super League) with him PSG and its president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, since the objective of Mbappé is a priority. Although the Argentine coach is on the wing for not achieving either Ligue 1 or the Champions League, at the moment he has a contract with the Parisians.
Antonio Conte has just dissociated itself from Inter de Milan champion, and it is not the first time he has been associated with Real Madrid. In fact, he came very close to signing when Lopetegui was fired. Your profile of ‘firm hand’ He is liked by a wide sector of the board, who see him as the perfect man to make the predictable clean-up that will be in the white dressing room.
Other options are national and with a Madrid past. The first is that of Raul Gonzalez, current coach of Castilla. The mythical ‘7’ white has a good reputation in the club and his good work with the subsidiary guarantees a generational change, but it is not clear that he is ready for the great challenge. Similar is the opinion towards Xabi Alonso, who has just achieved promotion with Sanse (the Real Sociedad affiliate). Both are, in the opinion of the board, somewhat ‘raw’ and prefer to keep them as wild cards for the future.
Several soccer players have also come to the Sports City to train and continue with their respective recoveries, cases of Sergio Ramos Y Lucas Vazquez. The captain, who is not clear about his future, did not meet Florentino, whom he will have to see shortly to finish deciding his renewal or his departure.
Neither did the Galician winger, who in his case does have signs of renewing shortly, although he has offers to go abroad, such as Naples.
