Ex-Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane could be Manchester United's next manager

What Michael Carrick said to Paul Pogba before captaining Man Utd

Now unemployed, Zidane appears to be taking out of the game before lining up a return in 2019, and L'Equipe now report that he is particularly looking to become the next Manchester United manager next summer. City are a really good side, great manager, some great players, a way of playing that they all know about.

In case you didn't know.

.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has hinted that Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard will both be available for Sunday's Premier League clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.

It is understood that United shortlisted Zidane as one of the candidates to replace Mourinho if the 55-year-old leaves at the end of the current season.

According to the newspaper, the 1998 World Cup victor could end his sabbatical early to replace the Portuguese tactician, whom he worked with briefly during his time at Los Blancos.

The United boss has been in the media for all the wrong reasons throughout the summer, complaining about transfers, players, and his relationship with United's executive vice-president, Ed Woodward.

Paul Scholes has named his dream XI of Manchester United teammates, including Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Zidane addresses the press in previous interview where he announced his exit from Real Madrid.

The rumour comes from a reliable source and this isn't the first time that Zidane has been linked with Manchester United.

Mourinho is under huge pressure this season after failing to win a trophy at Old Trafford in the 2017-18 campaign.

Mourinho is still under contract at Manchester United and will continue as manager for the foreseeable future.

With 16 Premier League goals last season, Lukaku set the world alight at the World Cup with four goals, and Mourinho will be chomping at the bit to get him back out on the pitch, and he is sure to start at the weekend.
