Italian tactician Massimiliano Allegri follows next at 3/1 with Los Blancos icon Raul slightly behind at 7/2.
Another club legend in Guti is on Betfair's shortlist of candidates and can be backed at 9/1.
Then come the more… predictable links.
Belgium boss Robert Martinez and Gunners hero Arsene Wenger are both priced at 12s, while Joachim Low and Ernesto Valverde are 14s.

Despite wrestling back the La Liga title from Barcelona last season, Zidane's future is on the rocks.
The club suffered their second-consecutive defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday.
And that dismal result leaves their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League in the balance.
Reports from Spain are claiming ZZ has four games to save his job with Pochettino waiting patiently.
Betfair Spokesperson, Sam Rosbottom said: "Despite winning three consecutive Champions League trophies during his previous spell as Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane is having a tough time in the Spanish capital this time around.
"The current champions sit fourth in the league having already lost three games this season and face elimination from the Champions League if they don’t win next week’s match against top of their group Borussia Monchengladbach.

"It’s no surprise that reports in Spain have suggested he could be leaving imminently.
"Looking at who could replace him if he goes, most bets have been for the former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, who is the even money favourite to become the next permanent manager at Los Blancos.
"We have also seen a bit of support for Max Allegri, the former Juventus manager’s odds have been cut from 15/2 to 3/1 overnight.
“A couple of former Madrid players are also in the running too, with Raul a 7/2 shot and Guti 9/1. Elsewhere, a return for Jose Mourinho looks unlikely at 20/1.”
