Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could be on his way to Santiago Bernabeu as the manager to replace Zinedine Zidane, who quits his post last Thursday.
Zidane surprisingly announced his decision to end his two-and-a-half-year stay at Santiago Bernabeu on Thursday night.
Though it still Zidane’s resignation still baffles many fans and pundits – including Madrid president Florentino Perez – but the Los Blancos need to move on by hiring a new tactician who would take over from where he stopped.
Arsene Wenger was the first manager linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu by reporters, considering the fact that he is presently without a club.
It should be recalled that Perez was linked with a move to hire the Frenchman in 2003, but Wenger refused to accept any offer from the Galacticos president.
Despite failing in his first attempt to get Wenger, Florentino Perez and the club’s sporting director during that time, Jorge Valdano met with the 68-year-old tactician over a possible move to Madrid but they were unsuccessful in their mission.
Perez now stands better chance to achieve his dream of working with the Gunners legend in the upcoming season, but it remains unknown if the billionaire has the zeal to still work with him.
With the quality of players possess by Real Madrid, Wenger would surely win trophies with the Los Blancos, unlike his time at the Emirates stadium where he only managed one Premier League trophy in 14 years.
