Zidane agrees to take charge at Old Trafford at the end of the season

Manchester United have reportedly been given a promise by Zinedine Zidane that he’s willing to take the job at Old Trafford

Manchester United is still looking for a potential replacement for underperforming boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

After losing six of their last 12 matches across all competitions they’re already out of the Carabao Cup, while they’re already 13 points behind Chelsea in the race for the title.

With United in freefall, Zinedine Zidane, 49, has emerged as a possible option to take over.

Having previously resisted offers from Old Trafford, Zizou is now keen to work with his former Real Madrid players Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane at United.

According to the Daily Record, United hope The Frenchman’s relationship with these two key players can tempt him to join the club.

According to Bild, United had the idea of Zinedine Zidane as new manager but the 49-year-old has reportedly let the board know that he doesn’t feel ready for a move to England at the moment and prefers to take a break until summer.

According to Manchester Evening News, Zidane’s former international teammate Emmanuel Petit is in the process of taking lessons.

“Communication is very important. If you do not speak the language when you arrive at a club like Manchester United, that could be a big problem.

“I’ve been told that he has been learning English recently, so I think he knows it’s important for his career.”

Zidane is available, having left Real Madrid in the summer after getting discouraged by Florentino Perez’s refusal to sign his top transfer targets.

Reports in the last week said the Glazers have reportedly made their move for the Frenchman. Zidane is reportedly willing to accept the job on the proviso it will be at the end of the season.
