Big news coming from former Marca chief editor Eduardo Inda. The Spanish journalist appeared on last night's El Chiringuito to say that Real Madrid have decided not to keep Carlo Ancelotti as the coach for the 2015-2016 season.

The club's decision was made months ago and it is a logical one considering how big Real Madrid are. It will be official early in June. Ancelotti will not stay. Both Mourinho and Pellegrini left the club after ending the season empty-handed, and that's what will happen with Carlo Ancelotti.

If Real Madrid decide to fire Ancelotti as Eduardo Inda reported, German coach Jürgen Klopp will be Real's favorite to replace him at the Santiago Bernabéu. Currently, the club is not even considering Zinedine Zidane as a coach ready enough to lead Real's project.

If a decision is made two weeks from now, Real Madrid will have a lot of time to build the new squad.
