Real Madrid News | Pochettino becomes a top managerial target after Zidane exit

The Blancos were worried, as Goal reported on May 6, that Zidane would resign after the season because he was tired of dealing with factors beyond his control. And now that Zidane has formally stood down, people in Madrid are looking for a candidate who can lead the club to victory.

On the other hand, Juventus has moved rapidly to beat its European rivals to a tried-and-true winner. The Bianconeri set to welcome a familiar face back to Turin.

In light of this, the focus in Madrid has switched to Pochettino.
