According to 'Marca', Zinedine Zidane will be the head coach of Real Madrid next season.
Always deflecting the question towards Florentino Perez, the Frenchman has not considered his contract situation to be a pressing matter as he focuses on the fixture run-in and even makes plans for pre-season and the summer transfer window.
However club president Perez has always been a big backer of Zidane ever since the current boss joined as a midfielder, a transfer which began a mutually reciprocated working relationship.
Indeed, the former reserve team coach has earned the blind trust of Florentino and his performance is not so much measured on results as it is on the threefold love that emanates from the fans, staff, and players.
A renewal until June 2018 is thus a formality, and the length of contract is backed by both men who consider Sir Alex Ferguson-esque tenures to be an unrealistic aim in modern football.
