According to Jugones La Sexta, Florentino Perez made contact with Zinedine Zidane in order to convince him to return to Real Madrid immediately.

Now that Real Madrid has been eliminated from all the competitions this season, president Florentino Perez has gotten into emergency mode and he has decided to practically beg Zinedine Zidane to reconsider his return after a sabbatical.

The French manager decided to leave his job at the end of last season because he didn’t think that he could make the squad win any more trophies, he obviously didn’t want to see his reputation severed by a humiliation such as the one that just happened during the last 8 days and the man made his choice with perfect timing.

Pretty much everything that Zidane envisioned came to pass, Los Blancos had one of the most horrific years in their history and they are still going to struggle to finish La Liga in third place by the end of the season.

Florentino Perez’s decision to bring Santiago Solari in order to put out the fire didn’t work out very well, the club’s president still believes that the problem is that the squad is not getting the motivation to keep winning trophies and he really thinks that bringing the ideal manager is the answer to all the problems.

At first, the most obvious option seemed to be Jose Mourinho but the chairman has encountered a few problems that could prevent the Portuguese manager from coming on board.

As time runs out for the club’s president because the club’s associates keep asking for his resignation, Perez has made a desperate attempt to try and sway Zinedine Zidane to come back from his sabbatical and immediately take control of the squad.

The president had a long meeting with members of the board last night which extended until 2 am, there were several names put into the mix during this meeting between the chairman and his committee.

Everybody suggested names such as Jurgen Klopp, Massimiliano Allegri, Mauricio Pochettino, Joachim Low, and Jose Mourinho.

But none of these names seem to convince the president, which is why he decided to make the call to Zinedine Zidane right after the meeting according to Jugones and the French manager attended his former president with the highest level of attention.

We have to always keep in mind that Florentino and Zidane have always been extremely close as friends, the president is the reason that the French legend came to Real Madrid when he was a player and also the one who decided to give him his first chance as a professional manager.

‘Zizou’ would never leave Florentino hanging under any circumstance, which is why he listened to the plea.

Opinion: Ronaldo would succeed at Juventus with Mourinho

We give you our reasons why Cristiano Ronaldo would be successful at Juventus if he had Jose Mourinho as his new manager next season. We...

The intention that the president has is to bring Zinedine Zidane as the squad’s manager as soon as possible, but the Frenchman doesn’t believe that urgency is the best way to go about things.

As much as he understands that Florentino Perez thinks that even his job is on the line if he doesn’t make huge changes inside the club, ‘Zizou’ has never been one to act irrationally and he believes that taking Santiago Solari’s job right now would be incredibly disrespectful to one of his teammates and good friends.

The manager decided to decline the proposal right now, but he would be open to taking the job in June once the season comes to an end.

There are also some conditions that Zidane would place if Florentino Perez wanted him to return, the first one being that he should have all the power in the squad to make the toughest decisions.

Another major demand from Zidane would be to have a blank check in order to bring the players he wanted and make Real Madrid a great squad again.

This means that Santiago Solari has a few months to right the ship and finish the season in Champions League positions, he already denied that he would quit his job and his intention is to finish this first experience as a pro in the best possible manner.
