Michael Laudrup ‘contacts Real Madrid’

Former Real Madrid player Michael Laudrup has reportedly contacted the club to gauge interest on a future managerial move.

The Dane is currently out of work after leaving Qatari club Al-Rayyan earlier this year while incumbent Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui is currently under immense pressure.

Diario AS cite a report on TV station Telemadrid that states Laudrup – who joined Madrid as a player directly from Barcelona in 1996 – could be a similar appointment to Zinedine Zidane in 2016.

The former forward has previous managerial experience in Spain with Getafe and Real Mallorca while also enjoying stints at Brondby, Spartak Moscow, Swansea City and Lekhwiya.

The European champions are currently on a four-game winless run in which they have not scored, losing three times, with Coach Lopetegui’s future in doubt.

Reports from Italy have linked Antonio Conte to the Madrid job.
