Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has hinted that he is set to make a come back to management very soon. Most of the reports claim United as destination.
The former midfielder has been out of job since resigning from his position as Real Madrid boss after guiding the Galacticos to a third consecutive Champions League crown in May.
But he told Spanish broadcaster TVE that he plans to be back in the game very shortly. Zidane said: “Yes, surely. Soon I will return to training because it is what I like and is what I have done all my life.”
Zidane is the favourite to replace Jose Mourinho if the Portuguese is sacked by Manchester United.
He told friends last month that he expects to be offered the Old Trafford gig should Mourinho be removed.
Mourinho is under pressure after a frustrating summer in the transfer market followed by a poor start to the season — United have lost two of their first four games.
Reports claimed that Zidane was already preparing for life in the Old Trafford hot-seat by compiling a list of transfer targets.
Toni Kroos, Thiago Alcantara, James Rodriguez and Edinson Cavani are said to be among a list of names that Zidane would prefer to take to Manchester United should he be appointed as Mourinho’s successor.
