Fabrizio Romano offers exclusive update on Zinedine Zidane’s future amid Manchester United speculation

Zinedine Zidane walked away from Real Madrid at the end of the 2020/21 season and hasn’t returned to football since. Given his record – he led Los Blancos to two La Liga titles and a remarkable three Champions League titles – many clubs covet him.

But the Frenchman isn’t in a rush to return to coaching, Fabrizio Romano told Football Espana in our exclusive interview with him. He’s waiting for the right sporting project to arrive. That could be Juventus, or Paris Saint-Germain, or the French national team. It all depends on Zizou’s priorities.

Fabrizio confirmed that Manchester United, who are living in uncertain times regarding the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, haven’t made an approach to the Frenchman as things stand and corroborated reports that Zidane isn’t exactly enamoured with the idea of heading to Old Trafford given his lack of English.

But things can change quickly in football, something evident in Antonio Conte’s decision to join Tottenham Hotspur after turning them down in the summer. Nothing can ever be ruled out.

    Zinedine Zidane is the right appointment for Head Coach at MUFC. If he were to be appointed to that position, then all four Premier League NW England Clubs other than Burnley FC would have former Champions League winners as Head Coaches – which is the best concentration of footballing excellence anywhere. Furthermore, Zidane has already worked very successfully with two key players that are now at MUFC. For him, this appointment would offer football management experience in the best and most competitive League in the world. Therefore, I cannot see how he could reasonably refuse to accept the job of Head Coach at MUFC, if he were to be offered this post on reasonable terms.
