Real Madrid will announce that record-breaking boss Zinedine Zidane is to step down as manager in a special press conference this afternoon.

The Sportsman are reporting that the decorated Frenchman will shockingly depart the La Liga giants less than a week after securing a third consecutive Champions League trophy in Kiev by beating Liverpool 3-1 last Saturday night.

A club legend both as a player and manager, Zidane won 104 of his 149 games in charge at the Santiago Bernabéu, and he is now expected to take over from Didier Deschamps once his ex-Juventus teammate's contract expires following this summer's 2018 World Cup campaign.

The 45-year old had only been Real's boss for two and a half years, so there's no doubt this announcement will rock the footballing world.

Madrid did finish third in La Liga last season behind Barcelona and city rivals Atlético. Despite their Champions League heroics, there must have been disappointment internally that Real fell 17 points behind Barca in the table and finished only three above Valencia in fourth place.
