talkSPORT’s top Spanish football expert Graham Hunter joined the Sports Bar to discuss the latest rumours linking Manchester City target Jurgen Klopp with Real Madrid.Reports in some newspapers have linked the La Liga side with a move for the outgoing Borussia Dortmund boss, should Carlo Ancelotti be removed as Bernabeu chief in the summer.“These are reasonable rumours,” Hunter told talkSPORT. “There are no doubts that Carlo Ancelotti’s job is under threat.“Real Madrid want Zinedine Zidane to take over from Ancelotti but, after one season, is he ready? Paris Saint-Germain are candidates to take Zidane away as well.“Jurgen Klopp is a coach who has given Real Madrid just horrifically hard nights [in the Champions League]. They admire and like him. He’s a big character, who can handle the pressure.“Is he a shoo-in for the Bernabeu? No. Is it a reasonable shout that, should Ancelotti move on, they will look at Klopp? That’s a reasonable concept.”
