West Ham primary managerial target Rafa Benitez has today been slashed to 4/1 from 16/1 yesterday to become the next Real Madrid manager.
Zinedine Zidane remains favourite to take over at Real Madrid at 7/4 but he is now closely followed by Benitez. Another manager previously linked with West Ham, Jurden Klopp is third favourite at 6/1.
Spanish football expert Guillem Balague says Real Madrid have sounded out both Jurgen Klopp and Rafa Benitez to see if they would be interested in taking over from Carlo Ancelotti. Guillem said “Real have spoken to Julen Lopetegui at Porto, to Jurgen Klopp, to Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho. They have already spoken to those four to see if they would be interested in coaching Real Madrid .They have spoken to Jose Mourinho – he said no to them, of course. Out of those four, Rafa is favoured by some but not others”
