- The boss is said to be growing frustrated with matters outside of his controls and the criticism he gets.
- Covid-19 rules have made him feel bored with the daily routine at the training ground.
- A marquee signing could convince the Frenchman to stay.
According to Goal's Mario Cortegana, who is considered to be a reliable journalist, Real Madrid players fear that Zinedine Zidane could leave Real Madrid in the summer despite having 1 more year on his contract.
The report says a growing number of players and staff members are expecting a change at the helm.
Zidane is believed to be 'tired and annoyed' of dealing with things that are not in his control. He had to fight on multiple fronts with the injury-ravaged squad and has been facing lots of criticism when results didn't come his way.
Goal adds that the Frenchman is getting bored with the daily routine that he has to carry out amid Covid-19 restrictions. The whole process in now related to endless rounds of testing to meet the strict protocols, which has removed much of the fun associated with the manager's job.
The board still hope that he could be convinced to stay despite the abovementioned factors.
The club bosses will respect any decision he makes but there is a general understanding that a marquee addition in the summer, like Kylian Mbappe, could convince him not to step down.
