Low favourite as Real Madrid president Perez has 3-man Zidane replacement shortlist

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has a three-man shortlist to succeed Zinedine Zidane at the end of this season.

While the French coach retains Perez's total support, he will be shown the door if Real finish the campaign without a trophy won.

Don Balon says Germany boss Joachim Low remains Perez's priority target. Low is prepared to return to club football after the summer World Cup in Russia.

Perez also has two alternatives - both based in the Premier League.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp are under consideration. Though unlike Low, have long contracts with their respective clubs.

Indeed, it's suggested Perez recognises it will be "nigh impossible" to tempt Klopp away from Anfield this summer.
