Zinedine Zidane, assistant to Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid

The Coach has refused to confirm or deny what he’ll be doing next season, insisting he needs to sit down with President Andrea Agnelli and discuss transfer strategy before deciding.

Today La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests a new name in the race to replace Conte, his ex-Bianconeri teammate Zidane.

The Frenchman is currently assistant manager to Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid as well as sporting director, but has no real management experience.

French newspaper L’Equipe maintains Bordeaux have also prepared an offer for Zidane to begin his coaching career.

Several star tacticians have been named as potential successors to the three-time Scudetto winner, including Roberto Mancini, Luciano Spalletti and Massimiliano Allegri.

Jurgen Klopp and Diego Simeone are glamorous but unlikely options, as they are solidly at Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid.

Meanwhile, President Agnelli travelled with the team and Conte for today’s game with Roma, so they may well have continued discussions on the plane.
