Zidane steps down as Real Madrid Coach

Zinedine Zidane leaves Real Madrid just days after leading club to third successive Champions League victory

Blanc's ability to take over from the Conte - who is widely expected to depart Stamford Bridge in the coming days - straight away is seen as a massive advantage by the Stamford Bridge hierarchy, although they are also expected to sound out the availability of his former global team-mate Zinedine Zidane, who quit his role as Real Madrid boss yesterday.

After reaching the Champions League final, he and the club are already building for next season.

"I don't see myself continuing to win this year and I am a victor, I don't like to lose", said Zidane, who was under contract with Real until 2020.

"Clearly the club wants him, the manager wants him and he wants the club, so for me it's game over", Mourinho said.

If Real Madrid want to land Mauricio Pochettino from Tottenham Hotspur then it will cost them £42.5million. It's time for a change. For me and for everybody, I think the moment to change has arrived.

Whenever you get any kind of an informant anywhere near a campaign, there has to be an assurance that it was not political or partisan in nature.

"It would've been easy to force the exit, but the players made a pact for the Scudetto and I chose to accept the decision".

"I would recommend it to any team in the world, for his football ideas and his maniacal way of working".

Perez, who sat alongside Zidane on Thursday afternoon, said: "This was a totally unexpected decision, Zidane informed me of his choice yesterday".

As well as Pochettino, former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Italian Maurizio Sarri, most recently of Napoli, have all been linked with the high-profile role, as has Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp.

Rather tellingly, Bale's social media channels remained absolutely silent while the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos sent farewell messages to the iconic Frenchman. The 45-year-old revealed that he feels this is the right time to go despite being a legend as both a player and a manager. "I'm not looking for another team", Zidane said.
