Zinedine Zidane could have a big say on the next coach of Real Madrid. Zizou is having a growing influence at Real - thanks to Jose Mourinho's insistence - and could convince president Florentino Perez about who should replace the Special One.

Mourinho is expected to leave Madrid at the end of the season and Perez has a shortlist of potential replacements, which include Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and Germany coach Joachim Low.

However, Ecodiario says Zidane is pushing Laurent Blanc's case to Perez. The former Barcelona defender will be available after the Euros when he leaves the France job.
