Duncan Castles claims Real wanted to replace Zinedine Zidane with Pochettino but the deal failed owing to Levy's refusal.

"Pochettino wanted the job in the summer, he was offered the job, accepted it and Daniel Levy prevented it from happening," he told the Transfer Window Podcast.

"You have to take from all of that that he’s very much a Real candidate and still the No.1 candidate from Madrid’s perspective to be the next permanent manager of Real Madrid."
