Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez Blanco will return to the club next week, becoming Florentino Perez's adviser, according to MARCA.

Per that same report, Raul will still be one of BeIN Sports' pundits until the end of the current season, being on their booth during the next El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona. However, he will join Real Madrid on July 1st.

Raul will be following Zinedine Zidane's path, as Madrid's coach was also one of Perez's consultant before being in charge of Real Madrid Castilla. In fact, Zidane was one of the people who suggested the signing of Carlo Ancelotti back in 2013.

If Raul is interested in a potencial career as a coach, Florentino Perez will surely let him gain some experience in Madrid's academy, although it seems that the former striker wants to be a member of the board.
