Zinedine Zidane has indicated interest to manage in the EPL next season and is keeping tabs on Jose Mourinho’s situation at Manchester United, according to reports in France.
Zidane is currently out of work after he resigned as Real Madrid manager the same week after guiding the club to their third consecutive Champions League title.
Zidane also won La Liga with Madrid in 2017, though some will suggest he did it with the best players already available to him.
He had been linked with the French national team job but Didier Deschamps looks certain to stay in his role after winning the World Cup in Russia last month.
The pressure is on current United boss Mourinho to close the gap on rivals Manchester City, who won the Premier League title last season by a 19-point margin.
Old Trafford boss Mourinho has “been at odds with United’s hierarchy this summer”, says the Metro, after a frustrating pre-season.
The Red Devils failed to sign a centre-back despite being linked with a number of defenders in the summer transfer window.
According to L’Equipe, Zidane is considering his next job and has his sights set on the Premier League.
The report suggests he is especially keen on managing Manchester United.
Mourinho knows he is under pressure to deliver success to United after failing to win a trophy last season and finishing 19 points adrift of rivals City in the league.
