Former Chelsea and Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez is being linked as a surprise contender to replace Carlo Ancelotti as Real Madrid boss next season.
The Spanish tactician, currently with Serie A giants Napoli, has a proven track record of winning trophies everywhere he goes, though he continues to divide opinion throughout the game.
Often criticised for a slightly defensive approach to the game, Benitez has also failed to win a league title since his days with Valencia, when he twice won La Liga in 2002 and 2004.
Still, it may be that he will find success in his native Spain once again if he does take over at the Bernabeu, with ESPN reporting that he is firmly in contention as the club consider the future of their current manager.
Ancelotti won the Champions League for Real last season, but now faces a trophyless campaign after a disappointing run of form in the second half of this term.
