Real Madrid are enduring tough season in 2020/21 like majority of European giants in their respective leagues.

The La Liga race is slowly tilting towards Atletico Madrid, which has increased the headache for Zinedine Zidane. As the manager is yet to decide on his future, Florentino Perez has already lined up Massimiliano Allegri and Raul as the possible replacements for the French international.

According to the reports in Daily Express, Real Madrid are looking to acquire the services of Massimiliano Allegri if Zinedine Zidane leaves the club at the end of the season. Raul is currently working as a manager at Real Madrid Castilla and the club is interested to sign him if Allegri is not willing to accept the offer.

Massimilano Allegri has no job since Juventus sacked him a few seasons ago. The Italian international was rumoured with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur when they sacked Jose Mourinho and Mauricio Pochettino respectively. He is also linked with Arsenal who are looking to replace Mikel Arteta. However, the clubs failed to reach any conclusion and Allegri is yet to find a job.

On the other hand, Raul Gonzalez has done a commendable job with Real Madrid Castilla in Segunda Division B. The club is in the second position on the points table with 40 points from 24 games. Raul Gonzalez is looking to finish high on the points table at the end of the season with the outfit. Real Madrid Castilla has supplied ample amount of players to their parent club, Real Madrid during the injury crisis in 2020/21.

Real Madrid might not feature in the next season’s Champions League as they haven’t resigned from the breakaway European Super League. It remains interesting to see if anyone comes forward to take the job amidst the crisis.
