Zinedine Zidane future

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane at the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid on May 28,.2016

Zinedine Zidane unexpectedly stepped down as Real Madrid boss on May 31 to leave one of world football's top managers on the market.

The Frenchman led Los Blancos to nine trophies during his two-and-a-half years at the helm, including the unprecedented feat of winning three successive Champions League crowns.

However, his decision to leave the club just five days after the latest triumph shocked the footballing world and left a number of teams considering an approach for the 46-year-old.

Chelsea and Juventus are the latest clubs to have been linked with a move.
