Manchester United target Zidane as Mourinho replacement

Manchester United will make a move to make Zinedine Zidane their next manager should Jose Mourinho leave the club, according to sensational reports.

Following the conclusion of the World Cup just over two weeks ago, the headlines have been dominated by Jose Mourinho and his long list of outbursts about a lack of signings and the lack of players available to him, leaving many to suggest that his famed ‘third season syndrome’ is already kicking in.

The Manchester United boss has had similar meltdowns during both of his spells at Chelsea, and also when at Real Madrid, and is yet to make it into a fourth season at any of his previous clubs, with some at Old Trafford fearing history is repeating itself.

However, according to The Sun, bosses at the club are lining up a move to replace the Portuguese with Zinedine Zidane, after the Frenchman sensationally quit Real Madrid within days of guiding the club to their third successive Champions League title.

The former Juventus and Real Madrid midfielder is taking some time out of the game at present, but should the Manchester United hot-seat become available in the near future, he would be at the top of the club’s wish-list to replace the self proclaimed ‘Special One’.
