Real Madrid are reportedly eyeing a move for Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti as they look to reunite with their former manager in a bid to replace Zinedine Zidane.

The Italian spent two years in charge of Los Blancos from 2013-2015, and led the team to their famous 10th European Cup with victory over Atletico Madrid in Lisbon in 2014. The 61-year-old also won the Copa del Rey, European Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup during two years in Madrid.

And according to Spanish outlet Cadena Ser, the LaLiga giants have made contact with Ancelotti about returning to the Santiago Bernabeu, as he still remains an extremely popular figure in the Madrid boardroom.

The report also states that Everton are already looking at potential replacements in case the veteran manager does decide to leave.

Madrid are also considering former Tottenham and current Paris Saint-Germain boss, Mauricio Pochettino, former Inter boss Antonio Conte, and club legend Raul as potential Zidane replacements.

Zidane left Madrid for the second time as one of their greatest ever coaches, winning an unprecedented three consecutive Champions Leagues between 2016 and 2018, and also scooping up the 2017 and 2020 La Liga titles and two FIFA Club World Cups.
