Zinedine Zidane has refused to commit his future to Real Madrid.

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has dropped a bombshell by hinting he may not be at the helm next year. Los Blancos won the La Liga title earlier this week following a 2-1 victory against Villarreal.

Real lead Barcelona by seven points heading into the season-finale against relegation-threatened Leganes tomorrow.

Zidane will then have three weeks to get his side fully prepared for their Champions League last-16 second leg against Manchester City.

City hold a 2-1 advantage from their first meeting prior to the coronavirus break.

But a defeat for Real at the Etihad could be Zidane's final match in charge as he refused to confirm whether he would remain in his position for the 2020/21 season - even though he has two years left on his current contract.

"I am here now, but nobody knows what is going to happen," Zidane said.

"I have a contract and I am comfortable. In football everything can happen, everything changes from one day to the next. I don't know how long I will be in.

"I just feel lucky to be here. I really enjoy the day to day because this will one day end."

Zidane was pressed further on his future plans but he refused to give any more details away.

"There are many things to play," the Frenchman added. "There are three weeks and there is competition.

"We are not going to talk about next year without this one ending.

"Things are done little by little. We will see later."

The Champions League will be concluded by a mini-tournament held in Portugal next month.

Real are desperate to be involved but they first face a tricky trip to the UK.

"We know it will be difficult," Zidane said. "It was already in the first leg.

"We will fight until the last second of this tie. Then we don't know what will happen."
