Real Madrid will try to sign Sevilla coach Unai Emery if Los Blancos somehow suffer a big loss this Saturday against Atlético de Madrid in the UEFA Champions League Final in Milan, according to a report from Sport Mediaset and El País.

Emery has conquered the Europa League title three years in a row and is definitely a coach with great potential, but how he would adapt to such a big club like Real Madrid with some of the greatest stars in the world of football remains to be seen.

Zidane has done a remarkable job so far by allowing his players to perform the way they should, and some could say that he has earned a chance to enjoy a full pre-season with the roster and start the 2016-2017 campaign with his coaching philosophy. Either way, Florentino Pérez seems to have Zidane's potential replacement ready if the Frenchman and his players suffer a debacle.
