ZinedineZidane is not certain about his Real Madrid future

Since being selected as the new manager of Real Madrid, ZinedineZidane has done an impressive job as he has guided the Spanish club to the finals of the Champions League and has a realistic chance of lifting the title that they secured since the season of 2013-14.

ZinedineZidane has a contract with Real Madrid that extends until 2017 but Florentino Perez is the president of the club and he is known to be quick in relation to changing managers and if Zidane fails to clinch the Champions League in this season, there is a chance that he might be sacked.

When the Frenchman was asked about his managerial future in Real Madrid, Zidane replied by saying: “We haven’t won anything yet and my belief is that when you have this job you have to give everything, every day and not think any further. I only concentrate on what we have to do; we’ll see what happens at the end of the season.”

The 43 year old manager only wants to focus in the every-day life as the manager of Real Madrid and when the season does reach it’s end, that’s when he will be start thinking about his future. This is probably the best thing that Zidane can do as the French coach has a tough task lying ahead with the finals of the Champions League arriving at the end of May and his team has to face off with Athletic Madrid.

The 23 year old player has a contract with Bayern Munich which extends until 2017 but taking into consideration that he has recently been dropped to the sidelines, it’s being rumored that Gotze is thinking about the possibility of leaving Munich and this is a huge boost for Liverpool as the Premier League club has shown interest in signing the highly rated midfielder.

Borussia Dortmund is also believed to be interested in signing Mario Gotze and are expected to compete with Liverpool in a race as to which club will be able to sign the German player who has a price tag in the range of £27million.

Under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola, Mario Gotze’s role in Bayern Munich has not been very influential but this might change when Carlo Ancelotti arrives to the Allianz Arena. It has already been confirmed that the Italian coach is going to become the new coach of Bayern Munich starting from the summer but it still remains uncertain if Ancelotti has plans for Gotze.

The CEO of Bayern Munich, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge stated that he will start having talks with Mario Gotze in relation to his future with the club but only after the conclusion of the current season after all of the matches of Bayern Munich are played. Read more
