Surprise Name Added To Real's Coaching Shortlist?

With Santiago Solari facing the sack at Real Madrid after two successive El Clasico defeats and with the LaLiga title seemingly out of reach, a surprise name has reportedly been added to Los Blancos' shortlist for their next manager.

Click through the gallery above to see some coaches who have been linked with the Real hot seat.

According to Spanish publication Sport, Real president Florentino Perez has already decided that Solari will not be the club's head coach next season. Not even a triumph in the UEFA Champions League will be enough for the Argentine to keep his job, with Perez reportedly wanting a new man to oversee a much-needed squad revamp

As a consequence, the Los Blancos president has already started the process of finding a new manager.

With many of Los Blancos' first-choice options to become their next head coach having long contracts and/or previously snubbing the chance to lead the club, Perez has reportedly added a surprise name to his shortlist.

As per Sport, legendary Real striker Raul Gonzalez, who was recently announced as the club's new U18 coach, is Perez's in-house solution to the coaching situation.

It is believed that, as a club legend and the second-highest player in the Spanish giants' all-time scoring chart, Raul would earn the trust of the fans and could become Los Blancos' very own Pep Guardiola.
