- Frenchman Zinedine Zidane could be on his way to Manchester United
- The club are said to have started discussion with the former Real Madrid boss
- United want him to replace embattled manager Jose Mourinho
Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly opened up discussion with Frenchman Zinedine Zidane over the possibility of him replacing Mourinho.
Manchester United have lost their last two games this season in the Premier League with the last defeat at home against bitter rivals Tottenham.
According to the report by Daily Mail, some members of Manchester United dressing room are expecting Jose Mourinho to be sacked sooner rather than later.
The report also added that the former Real Madrid and Chelsea gaffer may be fired should his wards fail to beat Burnley on Sunday in their next Premier League game.
‘They are saying Jose will be gone soon and some think he’ll be out if they lose at Burnley. Others can’t see him lasting beyond September.
‘We’ve seen this before and it just feels the same. The club will say it’s supporting Jose but we all saw what happened with Louis van Gaal.
‘The players are already talking about the possibility of Zidane coming in,'' a source told Daily Mail according to Metro UK.
