Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is reportedly on the brink of resigning after falling out with the club's president.
Los Blancos' season could be over before it has even started after reports surfaced on Tuesday that Zidane is considering leaving the club.
The Frenchman returned to the Santiago Bernabeu with the express goal of rebuilding the squad, and he now reportedly believes the club has broken its promise to him regarding the transfer of Paul Pogba.
According to The Independent, who cited El Pais journalist Diego Torres, the situation has resulted in Zidane losing confidence in club president Florentino Perez and his project at Real.
"Not signing Pogba puts Zidane on the brink of resigning," Torres said.
"Zidane personally promised Pogba he would bring him to Madrid, and now he is left looking bad. This has only increased the lack of confidence between Zidane and Florentino.
"For Zidane, his project and Pogba are almost the same thing. Nothing that he was promised has really come to pass.
"Zidane returned as a protective shield for Florentino, but he has already fulfilled that political and social mission."
Tensions between the 47-year-old manager and Perez were already high after the president reportedly vetoed Zidane's decision to sell Gareth Bale, and the club's failure to sign Pogba might be the final straw for the Frenchman.
Los Blancos have endured a dismal pre-season, having won just three of their seven friendlies to date.
