L'Equipe: Zidane wants to take over at Manchester United

L'Equipe: Zidane wants to take over at Manchester United

The report goes on to state that the Champions League winning manager is keen on taking Jose Mourinho's job and managing Manchester United.

He had been linked with the French national team job but Didier Deschamps looks certain to stay in his role after winning the World Cup in Russian Federation last month.

Mourinho's relationship with Shaw has been called into question on a number of occasions in the past, with the Portuguese boss publicly criticising the full-back on numerous occasions.

Intriguingly, Zidane now allegedly wants to replace Mourinho at Old Trafford, which is fascinating because it was Mourinho who first brought Zidane into the Real Madrid backroom setup back in 2010, and somewhat emulates how Mourinho replaced his former mentor in Louis van Gaal.

Zidane enjoyed an extremely successful spell in charge of Real Madrid, guiding them to three consecutive Champions League triumphs and the La Liga title.

Zidane was heading the Whites from 2016 to 2018, and won nine titles with the Real Madrid.

Despite finishing 19 points behind Manchester City, Mourinho is adamant that last season's second-placed finish in the Premier League should be considered as one of his "biggest achievements".

Old Trafford boss Mourinho has "been at odds with United's hierarchy this summer", says the Metro, after a frustrating pre-season.

English outlet The Independent have revealed that Roma's Monchi is one of the candidates Manchester United are eyeing for their new role of Director of Football.

Several factors, including the success of Txiki Begiristain at rivals Manchester City as well as a turbulent summer transfer window amid murmurings of discontent between chairman Ed Woodward and manager Jose Mourinho, are said to be reasons behind the move.
