Real Madrid was left out of the Champions League after losing in the semifinals 2-0 at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea and thus closed a 1-3 on aggregate against. It was a great blow for the Merengue team since if they did not win LaLiga, they would end the season without any title, something that would be a total failure.

Under this scenario, Florentino Pérez together with the Merengue board of directors must evaluate Zinedine Zidane's cycle, since in the middle of the season his position was questioned when he almost didn't qualify for the round of 16, something that he finally achieved in the last day of the competition and that ghost haunted him for the rest of the current course.

In this sense, one of the coaches being considered could be David Moyes, a Scottish coach who is currently at West Ham United and has shown that he can get the most out of footballers such as Jack Greaslish, who is now wanted by him Manchester City by Pep Guardiola.

David Moyes could come to Real Madrid

The Scotsman is recognized in the world of football and has enough back to carry out a process similar to that of Ronald Koeman in Barcelona, given that he has no commitment to any of the current players and could calmly face a cleaning process bringing in new players. It should be noted that Moyes has an extensive career in European football and has managed clubs such as Everton and Manchester United, in addition to having already had a stint at LaLiga when between 2014 and 2015 he managed Real Sociedad.

But that is not the only reason that could serve for Moyes to become Zidane's replacement, but he also has to see the salary. The Frenchman is a coach with a very high salary, as he is one of the best in his position and earns approximately 1.4 million per month. Moyes, meanwhile, is well behind that and even a year ago he decided to cut 30% of his salary to help the English club with the coronavirus pandemic.
