RUMOURS regarding Zinedine Zidane's future continue to rumble on despite Real Madrid being in contention to win La Liga for the 35th time in their history.
And as reports suggest Zidane could step down as Madrid boss, we have looked at the most likely candidates to replace him, according to the bookies.
Zidane reportedly told his squad last week that he would be stepping down from the job.
And Betfair currently have former Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri as the ODDS-ON favourite to replace the Frenchman at 4/6.
Allegri won four consecutive domestic doubles with Juve from 2015 to 2018 and left the Italian giants with a win percentage of 70 per cent.
While legendary Galacticos Raul and Guti are second and third respectively in the running with the bookies.
It would be a natural progression for Raul to take the job as he is currently in charge of the B team, Real Madrid Castilla.
