According to AS, Real Madrid are still hesitating between Max Allegri and Raúl to take over from Zinedine Zidane, but the Italian is still one step ahead.
Now that the Spanish press is convinced that Zinedine Zidane will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season, it remains to be seen who will take his place on the bench for the Merengues. According to AS, two options enter into the equation: continuity with Raúl who is currently leading the young people of Castilla or the start of a new project with Massimiliano Allegri. The Madrid daily believes that today, the Italian is the big favorite. In his case, AS is able to state that there have been contacts with President Florentino Pérez, thus pushing the Frenchman towards the exit. Allegri, who has been free of any contract since leaving Juventus Turin last year, has even refused offers from two major European teams while waiting for the place at Real to become available.
For his part, Raúl has already had a firm offer from Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga. Some players on the German squad are said to have even learned in the dressing room that the Spaniard will be the next coach. Nothing has yet been formalized, but a departure from Raúl abroad would leave a boulevard to Massimiliano Allegri.
Spanish media insist: Allegri wants to become Real Madrid’s new coach. Some people close to the club have already contacted him directly to find out about his availability. For Real Madrid, the best option is to bring in the Italian while leaving the keys to Castilla to Raúl. That way, if things go wrong with the ex-Juve, Plan B is all found. But in the meantime, Florentino Pérez prefers to build a new project with world-class players such as Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland, supervised by a coach who has already proven himself on the continental scene: Massimiliano Allegri.
