According to Spanish newspaper Sport, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez believes Italian Roberto De Zerbi (44) is the ideal person to lead the youth project following the departure of his compatriot Ancelotti.
The newspaper indicated that Real Madrid have already contacted De Zerbe, who heads one of the most high-profile projects in the English Premier League, but negotiations are still at a preliminary stage.
