Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern will be holding their breath after hearing the news that Zinedine Zidane has decided to quit Real Madrid.
The former Galacticos midfielder has been very successful during his time as a player and manager for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit, however, he has decided it is the right time to step down from the helm.
Reports have already begun to circulate with who a potential successor to the Los Blancos throne could be and Spurs fans will have been bracing themselves as Mauricio Pochettino’s name has been touted in the past.
What next for Madrid? Allegri? I believe Pochettino will stay at Spurs with his new contract but I also know Florentino sees him at Madrid at some point. Florentino wanted Mourinho when he got rid of Rafa. Not easy to replace Zidane

However, Sky Sports expert – and a big name in Spanish footballing matters – Guillem Balague believes Tottenham will be safe and the Argentine will remain at the White Hart Lane outfit, although he does expect to see him in Madrid at some point in the future.
The Tottenham locals in the Tavern will be able to breathe a huge sigh of relief regarding the news after the club managed to get Pochettino to sign a new deal with the club earlier this month.
The Argentine’s future had been up in the air for a short period of time following comments he made, however, he committed his future to the north London outfit.
Had he not signed a new deal, Tottenham could have been facing an entirely different prospect this summer.
