Real Madrid 'make Jürgen Klopp their number one target'

But Ramos is alleged to have held what could perhaps be described as crisis talks the following day, calling a players meeting from which coach Santiago Solari was apparently excluded.

Real Madrid asked former head coach Zinedine Zidane to return but the Champions League-winning boss said "not now", according to former president Ramon Calderon.

The 5-3 aggregate loss to Ajax handed Real their earliest elimination from the Champions League since 2010 and ended their three-year domination of Europe's elite competition.

Jose Mourinho, who previously managed Madrid before returning to England with Chelsea in 2013, has also been mentioned in relation to the position.

Real Madrid appointed Julen Lopetegui under controversial circumstances just before the World Cup last summer before sacking him only two months into the season.

The row came at the end of a miserable week for Madrid, which had seen them beaten by Barcelona in the Copa del Rey and league, before crashing out of the Champions League to Ajax. But Madrid trails leader Barcelona by 12 points and is five behind second-place Atletico Madrid with 12 matches left.

That advisory , which includes Centre, Clearfield, Clinton and Lycoming counties, will be in effect from noon Sunday to 7 a.m. While the I-95 area around Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia is expected to get hit with a mix of rain and snow.

Reports claim the French gaffer is willing to wait until the end of the season before the Blues decide Maurizio Sarri's future at Stamford Bridge. Other names being mentioned include Juergen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino, Joachim Loew and Antonio Conte, who was highly touted to replace Julen Lopetegui when the former Spain coach was sacked a few months into his job with Madrid this season.

"But the problem is who is going to run the club in the office?"

The report also indicates that Perez spoke with Solari after the Ajax defeat to demand an explanation for the performance.

Ex-Madrid president Roman Calderon is gaining support behind the scenes and it is understood he could force a presidential election. Solari was appointed caretaker manager, later earning a permanent contract until 2021 after a string of encouraging results.

"Real Madrid", he said, "has always had more candidates than Julia Roberts".
