Real Madrid have been keeping tabs on Pochettino as a successor to Zidane, but the Argentine's decision to sign a new long term contract with Tottenham has complicated things.
Real Madrid are now searching for a new manager with several big names linked to the role including Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp and Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino - though their chase of the latter will be hard following his recent new contract.
