Real Madrid have reportedly lined up club legend Raul and outgoing Germany boss Joachim Low as possible replacements for Zinedine Zidane.
Zidane is under growing pressure at the Bernabeu after a disappointing campaign, with the Champions League now Los Blancos' only realistic hope of silverware.
A failure to win the competition could bring an end to the Frenchman's second spell in charge.
Experienced coach Low, who will step down as Germany head coach in the summer after 15 years at the helm, is rumoured to be top of Madrid's shortlist.
The 61-year-old recently confirmed that he has been learning Spanish and has also been touted as a contender for the Barcelona job by iconic midfielder Xavi.
Former Madrid striker Raul is said to be an alternative option, having long been earmarked as the man to succeed Zidane following a two-year spell working with the academy side.
