Real Madrid want Mauricio Pochettino to replace Zinedine Zidane

Real Madrid want Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager but know they face fierce resistance from Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

Zinedine Zidane stunned Real on Thursday by resigning as coach five days after winning his third Champions League title.

Coincidentally, Pochettino is in Spain on Friday to attend the launch of his book, and Spurs chiefs will be anxiously awaiting his return.

The 46-year-old signed a new five-year deal with Spurs last week and the club insist there is no buy-out clause in his contract.

However, Pochettino has gone on record in the past as saying he would like to coach Real Madrid one day.
