Real Madrid look set to announce the return of Zinedine Zidane to the Bernabeu later today, sources in Spain have told Sky Sports News.
We understand Santiago Solari will be sacked at a board meeting later today with Zizou confirmed at his successor. We also understand the board meeting will begin at 5pm GMT.
The Frenchman returns less than a year since resigning after a hugely successful two-and-a-half year spell, where he brought nine titles to the Bernabeu, including three successive UEFA Champions League titles.
Spanish media outlet Marca have reported that Solari has already said goodbye to the first team, with Zidane set to take his first training session tomorrow.
