Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with the Real Madrid job.
Despite wining La Liga last season Zinedine Zidane already finds himself under pressure this campaign after two consecutive home defeats. First his side was beaten by newly promoted Cadiz in the league on Saturday, and then they lost to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.
That was despite the Ukrainian side forced to field a number of youth and second-string players after 19 members of their squad tested positive for coronavirus.
And defeat in the first El Clásico of the season at Barcelona on Saturday could force club president Florentino Pérez to make a change.
Pochettino has not worked since he was sacked by Spurs last November but is available having completed a period of gardening leave. Former club legend Raúl, who is currently reserve team coach is also been talked off in association with the job.
