Real Madrid 'make Jürgen Klopp their number one target'

Luka Modric

Interest in Mourinho stems from Real Madrid's domestic and continental struggles, and the club's failure to suitably replace Zinedine Zidane, who stunningly announced his departure after the team's third-consecutive Champions League triumph. No members of the coaching staff were at the meeting.

This heated interaction left both parties fuming and is said to have cast serious doubt over Ramos' future at the club, despite the defender having a contract until 2021.

Santiago Solari only signed a three-year deal with the club back in November, but reports suggest he will not remain in the hot-seat beyond the end of the season. After winning the Premier League title in 2015 in his second season back with Chelsea, he was dismissed the following December with the club off to a disastrous start to the year. This is according to Spanish media reports on Thursday.

Solari said after the loss to Ajax he hadn't accepted the job only to surrender when things got hard, and also said he wasn't anxious about all the talk by Mourinho.

Added to that was the UEFA ruling that Ramos' yellow card in the first leg - which Real Madrid won 2-1 - was a tactical one which would expunge his disciplinary record from the quarter-finals onward had Real Madrid advanced.

It capped a humiliating week in which they were knocked out of the Copa del Rey by FC Barcelona and beaten by Barca in the league.

Zidane's free-agent status would make him easier to recruit than other candidates to replace Solari, such as Mauricio Pochettino and Max Allegri, while Marca claim former Real manager Jose Mourinho is not being considered. Because of this, the deposed European champions are said to be ramping up their efforts to find a new manager to take over from Santiago Solari at the end of the season.
