Zinedine Zidane: Juventus plotting surprise move for Real Madrid boss this summer

- Zinedine Zidane is contracted to Real Madrid until June 2022

- Juventus are plotting to try and lure him away from the Spanish club this summer having failed the first time

- Zizou won two Serie A titles as a player for the Old Lady when he played for them

Italian League giants Juventus appeared to have reignited their quest of signing Real Madrid current manager Zinedine Zidane.

The Old Lady made attempts to lure their former player back to Turin as a replacement for Max Allegri but the Frenchman decided to rejoin Los Blancos after about one year away from them.

Zidane rose to the top of best managers in the world after winning the Champions League title three consecutive times (2015-2018).

But his second stint at the Santiago Bernabeu has been torrid for the coach as his relationship with the club's president is nothing near cordial at the moment.

The Serie A side is now hoping they can take advantage of the problems ongoing between them and offer him a new deal as they hope he can take over from Maurizio Sarri next season.

They are also hoping that his coming will reunite him with Cristiano Ronaldo which should, in the end, produce a Champions League title which has eluded them since the 90s.

SunSport quoting French outlet le10sport believe the Old Lady are sending out signals to the 47-year-old's entourage who is contracted to Real until June 2022.

The Sun added that the Spanish League giants have a list of candidates replace Zizou if he decides to use the exit doors before his contract expires.

Topping the list is former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino but that will be if their former star turns down a deal worth £7 million to succeed Sarri.
