Zinedine Zidane

Since making his big money move in 2013, the former Tottenham attacker is often deemed as a failure at Real Madrid, despite putting up a series of good performances over the years.

Asked about that possibility ahead of his country's World Cup 2018 warm-up friendly against Austria on Saturday, the 58-year-old said he had no interest at all in the job and was exclusively focused on preparing for his side's defence of their World Cup trophy in Russian Federation over the coming weeks. "I'm not going to get involved in these things", he said when asked about a possible successor.

The 23-year-old enjoyed an excellent campaign last season having provided 13 goals and 13 assists in all competitions to earn a place in the Portugal squad ahead of this summers World Cup finals.

The former Blues defender Sinclair told Sporting Bet: "I think for Hazard to be mentioned in the same category as Ronaldo or Messi, he would have to move to a club like Real Madrid".

"Daniel and I have spoken at length about our aspirations for this football club. It ended well for me when I was a player and it's ended well for me as a manager".

Real Madrid have reportedly launched an "all-out onslaught" to hire Mauricio Pochettino as Zinedine Zidane's replacement, while Germany boss Joachim Low has also been contacted.

Blanc was renowned as one of the world's best centre-backs during his illustrious playing career that saw him win the World Cup and European Championship with France, as well as representing elite clubs like Barcelona, Inter Milan and Manchester United at club level.

Less than a week ago, the Frenchman guided Los Blancos to their third consecutive Champions League success with a 3-1 victory over Liverpool in Kiev. Right now I want to focus on planning for next season and keep out of all the things that are being said.

"As a player, if I was not happy as I was not winning, I left myself, did not blame other people, took a decision, and that's that".

Zidane was hired in January 2016, his first major coaching job.

Zidane won an astonishing nine trophies in charge of Madrid, and you have to feel as though he won't be short of offers for his next appointment.
