Zidane returned for a second spell at the club during the 2018/19 season, helping the club to finish in the top four spots after a difficult campaign.
The 2019/20 season saw him win the Spanish Super Cup as well as triumphing over the other Spanish teams to win his second league title, having last done so in his first spell in the dugouts.
Zidane is regarded as arguably one of the best managers in the history of Los Blancos having chalked up many successes during his spell as the gaffer of the club.
However, he is set to announce his departure in the coming hours with Italian coaches Massimiliano Allegri and Antonio Conte tipped as the favourites to replace the former Madrid midfielder.
Raul Gonzalez is also among the shouts for the managerial job at the Santiago Bernabeu after his impressive works with the Real Madrid Castilla side.
Who are you tipping to step in for the Frenchman after his resignation?
