Real Madrid got better since the beginning of the season and got to the last eight of this season’s Champions League. Not everyone’s satisfied with the team’s performance though as Real are only third in La Liga, six points behind the leaders, Atletico Madrid. RB Leipzig’s manager, Julian Nagelsmann leads the Real Madrid next manager odds at the moment, let’s see his chances now.
Real Madrid have only suffered one defeat in 2021, from Levante at home in a La Liga game back in January. The team has been performing much better lately but still six points behind their huge local rivals, Atletico Madrid. They drew with them two weeks ago which makes their quest for another La Liga title quite difficult. Meanwhile in the Champions League Real won their group and knocked out Atalanta 4-1 on aggregate. But Zidane’s team is facing new challenges in the coming weeks. The games against Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the UCL and the El Clasico at home against Barcelona. The results of those games can also determine the future of Zidane who can easily leave at the end of the season.
Real Madrid next manager odds favor Nagelsmann
Online sportsbooks in Spain offer the smallest odds, 1.82 for the young German manager, Julian Nagelsmann to replace Zidane. Even though he has a valid until June 2023 which makes his signing quite a difficult task. Nagelsmann has a lot of admirers all over the world thanks to the attacking football his clubs represent. He started his coaching career at 1899 Hoffenheim at the age of only 29 and joined RB Leipzig in 2019. He reached the semi-finals of the Champions League with the team last year but Liverpool knocked them out in the last 16 this season.
The 33-year-old German has been approached by Chelsea before and according to him Real have also contacted him in 2018. But he might join the Los Blancos now if they make him another offer. Not sure though that his style would fit with the team and the players, while Tottenham Hotspurs are also interested in Nagelsmann. We shall see if he decides to stay at Leipzig or choose a bigger club this summer.
Allegri and Raul can also a possible option
After Pochettino became the manager of PSG this January, the remaining big name in the Real Madrid next manager odds is Massimiliano Allegri. The former Juventus boss is still out of work but has been mentioned as possible candidates at several clubs. He is more experienced than Nagelsmann and won six Serie A titles with his former club. Allegri was also contacted by Real in 2018 but he declined it then. Now he might accept an offer from real and take his first job outside of Italy. His odds to do so is 4.32 on 1xBet.
Fans would prefer though the appointment of the club’s legend Raul. Who has the odds of 3.74 by online gambling sites in Spain. He has been the manager of Real Madrid Castilla since 2019. But his coaching experience still might not be enough to get the job at the first team. Even though he could follow Zidane’s sample as another former player of the club who won several trophies and titles as a player. For now, the French manager’s place though looks secure but the remaining of the season might change his situation too.
