Villarreal is actively in search of a new coach following the departure of Quique Setien. The coaching market doesn’t offer an abundance of options, prompting the club’s management to explore an intriguing possibility.
As reported by Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid legend Raul is on the verge of taking the helm at Villarreal!
While Villarreal hasn’t made a definitive decision regarding their new coach yet, Raul is emerging as the top candidate at this stage.
Further talks and negotiations are expected between Villarreal and Raul, following which the final decision will likely be revealed.
Real Madrid, whose reserve team Castilla is currently managed by Raul, appears to be open to allowing the legendary striker to embark on his independent coaching career.
This comes after Raul declined several offers to coach first teams, including a notable one from Leeds in the Premier League last year.
Raul carefully considered the English club’s offer, expressed his gratitude, but ultimately found the project not to his liking. He chose to wait patiently for the right opportunity, and it seems that opportunity may now be on the horizon.
We await Villarreal’s final decision with anticipation…
