And El Confidencial report they have remained in regular contact with France legend Zidane about potentially taking up the role.

The article adds that he is aware his cycle at Real Madrid may be coming to an end, and is tempted by the idea.

And he knows the door is open to him, should he decide he wants to take up the role as France’s next manager.

However, he doe not want to leave on a major low, so his decision will rest on the outcome of the Champions League final against Liverpool.

His preference, in this moment, would be to stay at Real Madrid — though he knows he has a huge rebuilding job on his hands this summer.

But, generally, managers at the Bernabeu do not stay for very long, and he is already club’s fifth longest-serving manager despite having only been there for two-and-a-half years.

It is as yet unclear whether Deschamps will stay in his role beyond the summer — and his future will be re-evaluated based on France’s performance at the World Cup.

Les Bleus were drawn in a group alongside Australia, Denmark and Peru in Russia.
