Raul in contention to replace Solari

Real Madrid chiefs will consider turning to club legend Raul as a replacement for struggling manager Santiago Solari, according to a report.

Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is believed to be ready to terminate the contract signed by Solari just four months ago following a poor run of results.

Three defeats in their last four matches, including back-to-back defeats to Barcelona in league and cup, and the embarrassing 4-1 Champions League defeat against Ajax on Tuesday at the Bernabeu has completely derailed the club’s campaign.

Even if Madrid had retained Champions League trophy it would still not have saved Solari’s job.

Spanish news outlet Sport indicates that Mauricio Pochettino, Joachim Low and Massimiliano Allegri are all on Madrid’s shortlist of options, but Raul may be an outside contender.

All three of those aforementioned names are under long-term contracts, whereas Raul is in charge of Real’s youth team and can easily be promoted at the end of the campaign with minimal fuss.
