Real Madrid have approached Andre Villas-Boas over the possibility of him becoming their new head coach.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed he had the chance to become Zinedine Zidane's successor at Real Madrid but turned down the offer to stay in Turin.

"Did I say no to those two clubs?" "I do not know what I will do after, because at the moment the most important thing was the decision that I took".

Zidane, who stepped down as Real Madrid manager last month after winning a third straight Champions League title, was surprised to see his foot, which hammered home a hanging ball against Bayer Leverkusen 16 years ago, was so highly regarded.

"I did it in a phone call with (Real Madrid president) Florentino Pérez because I gave my word to President Agnelli".
