Real Madrid are currently on a five-match winless streak, and that is not normal.
The club is going through a major transition after the departures of their main men in the summer. Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo left the Santiago Bernabeu together, and to replace both at the same time has been tough for Los Blancos to cope with.
Change is needed at the Spanish capital, and with reports of their manager facing the sack coming out, that change might be on its way sooner than expected.
Jose Mourinho has emerged as the shocking target for club president Florentino Perez, as the Portuguese’s future at Manchester United remains uncertain.
Real Madrid need a manager who knows how to win, and Mourinho has proven to do the same with them before. However, given their ambitions and aim for the highest of highs, they have a star player they wish to reel in as well.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a man who has featured in La Liga before, and he could very well do the same again, this time at the Bernabeu. The Swede has been in top form in the MLS, and despite his age, still stands out as one of the most lethal forwards in world football.
The striker has played with Barcelona earlier in his career, but given the circumstances, Madrid fans will not mind him coming in and saving their club.
