Leading Liverpool to the Champions League final, and a 3-1 defeat to Real last Saturday, won't have done any harm to Klopp's chances of joining the Spanish giants.

Firstly, Pochettino's success has been built around a work ethic and mentality not appearing to fit into the ethos of Real Madrid. A year later he led Real to their first European Cup and La Liga double in 59 years.

After Real Madrid won the Champions League the third consecutive time, Ronaldo used the opportunity to make the night all about himself amid rumours of his departure from Los Blancos, saying that he was unsure about what the future holds for him.

Separately, disappointed with Zinedine Zidane's abrupt decision to leave Real Madrid, which he has managed for several years, the 33-year-old took to Instagram to post his heartfelt goodbye: "All I feel is pride at having been your player". "Now I want to focus on planning for next season, and keep myself a bit away from all that is being said".

Real Madrid have reportedly launched an "all-out onslaught" to hire Mauricio Pochettino as Zinedine Zidane's replacement, while Germany boss Joachim Low has also been contacted.

Madrid sports daily AS said after the final that Zidane was "the architect of this glorious and possibly unrepeatable era".

"You have to accept his decision and just thank Zidane for everything he has done", he said.

Zidane has now won nine trophies since replacing Rafael Benitez in the Santiago Bernabeu dugout in January 2016. "It ended well for me when I was a player and it's ended well for me as a manager".

"I don't see myself continuing to win this year and I am a victor, I don't like to lose", said Zidane, who was under contract with Real until 2020.

"This is a handsome moment as we have just won a third straight Champions League and I have now reflected and made this decision".
