Initially, Italian duo Massimiliano Allegri and Antonio Conte were thought to be the front-runners, but the former returned to Juventus whilst the latter is reportedly not under consideration.

They have instead turned to another Italian, who managed the club between 2013 and 2015.

During that time he helped them win La Decima, the tenth European title that had eluded them for over a decade.

After leaving Real he moved to Bayern Munich and then Napoli before joining his current side Everton, who he led to a 10th-placed finish last season.
