Real Madrid president Florentino instructs agents to find Zidane replacement

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is preparing for the departure of coach Zinedine Zidane.

Okdiario says Florentino is aware of Zidane being unsettled and considering his options, with now less than 18 months to run on his current deal.

Zidane's declaration that "Juventus is always in my heart" after the Champions League defeat of Liverpool has forced Florentino to instruct agents to begin sounding out potential replacements.

The Real president is now actively seeking to put together a shortlist of available candidates.

Florentino will also consider Castilla coach Raul should Zidane choose to walk away at season's end.
