Real Madrid will today announce the shock return of former manager Zinedine Zidane, according to reports in Spain.
Multiple outlets are claiming Los Blancos are on the verge of sacking caretaker boss Santiago Solari and replacing him with the Frenchman, who left the Bernabeu just last summer.
It’s understood the announcement of this sensational comeback will take place today (Monday, March 11) with Zidane set to take his first training session back in charge of the club later this week.
Real Madrid have endured a turbulent season since the departure of their former coach, who won three consecutive Champions League trophies during his two and a half seasons in charge.
Zizou was initially replaced by Julen Lopetegui, however the Spaniard was sacked in October after a disastrous run of form.

The side then saw an upturn in results as reserve team boss Solari took over in the interim, however they recently crashed out of the Champions League against Ajax and are now 12 points behind Barcelona in the LaLiga title race.
One of the major reasons Zinedine Zidane left Real Madrid was because president Florentino Perez refused to grant him excessive funds for a squad overhaul that he claimed was necessary.
It’s claimed this has now changed due to the team’s downward spiral, hence why he is happy to take the job again.
