Reports suggest that Real Madrid might consider Argentina’s head coach, Lionel Scaloni, as their next manager.
Real Madrid has allegedly initiated preliminary talks, with Argentine boss Lionel Scaloni emerging as a potential candidate. Scaloni, who recently guided Argentina to a FIFA World Cup title and secured a notable victory against Brazil in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying, has stirred speculation about his future with the national team.
Madrid’s swift inquiry follows the mixed signals Scaloni conveyed about his ongoing role as the team’s manager.
Lionel Scaloni shares a well-known friendship with Lionel Messi, who is nine years his junior. After the 2018 World Cup, where Argentina was eliminated in the round of 16, Scaloni assumed the managerial role.
He guided the team to a World Cup title in his first major tournament. However, the prospect of Scaloni’s departure raises questions about whether Messi would also leave. At 36 years old, Messi’s time on the international stage may be approaching its conclusion.
