Zinedine Zidane will be reappointed as Real Madrid manager, according to Sky sources.
The Frenchman, who left Real last summer after leading the club to three successive Champions League titles, will replace Santiago Solari.
According to sources in Spain, Real’s board of directors will meet with Solari to dismiss the Argentine and rehire Zidane.
Real saw their season fall apart in the space of a week with back-to-back defeats in the Copa del Rey and La Liga, leaving them 12 points behind rivals Barcelona.
A surprise 4-1 home loss to Ajax in the Champions League followed, resulting in Real fans staging a protest outside the Bernabeu in which they called for Solari to be sacked and for Jose Mourinho to replace him.
