REAL MADRID manager Zinedine Zidane has been offered a way out of the crisis at the Bernabeu, according to reports.
But this season has started disastrously as they trail league leaders Barcelona by 19 points.
Real Madrid sit fourth in the table and are at risk of missing out on the Champions League places if they continue their current form.
Stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have not hit the heights of previous seasons and now Zidane has come under increasing pressure to turn results around quickly.
It is reported that Zidane’s national side France could offer him their head coach position after the World Cup in Russia this summer.
Current boss Didier Deschamps’ future will not be decided until after the tournament.
Real will then look at either Germany manager Joachim Low or Chelsea’s Antonio Conte to replace Zidane.
However, in the meantime he must focus on helping Real bounce back from their defeat to Villarreal at the weekend.
Los Blancos are next in action against Leganes in the Copa del Rey quarter-final tomorrow (8.30pm).
