Zidane linked with Man Utd post

Manchester United want former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane to replace Jose Mourinho if the Portuguese departs Old Trafford.

Mourinho has become the bookies’ favourite to be the first Premier League manager to leave his job next season and United are already considering Zidane as a possible alternative, according to The Sun.

The France legend will be available for free after walking out on Real Madrid following his three Champions League titles with Los Blancos, while Mourinho has allegedly fallen out with some United board members after his revelation that none of his five summer targets have arrived.

The newspaper maintains sources close to United insist the first call would be to Zidane if Mourinho does eventually let his frustrations get the better of him and give up his position.
