Italian Serie A giants, Juventus’ former manager, Massimiliano Allegri and former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho are the top candidates to replace Zinedine Zidane as the Real Madrid manager, as per El Mundo cited by Calciomercato.com.
The Frenchman is under increasing pressure after Real suffered a shocking 1-0 defeat to recently promoted side Mallorca on Saturday.
As per the latest development, Zidane’s fate will decide if the Los Blancos will not secure a positive result in their next UEFA Champions League tie against the Turkish side Galatasaray.

Real are struggling in Europe’s elite competition where they just have one point after first two group matches, therefore, any result other than a win on Wednesday might prove to be the final nail in the coffin for Zidane’s second tenure at the club as a manager.
The report further stated that Allegri and Mourinho—both of whom are currently jobless—are the top two candidates to replace Zidane at the Santiago Bernabéu.
