- Zinedine Zidane could join Juventus at the end of this season
- The Serie A giants are planning to hire the Frenchman as a replacement for Maurizio Sarri
- Juve are hoping Zidane can help them win their first Champions League since 1996
Serie A giants Juventus have reportedly concluded plans to lure Zinedine Zidane away from Real Madrid at the end of the season.
The Italian League defending champions are willing to splash £7 million in a bid to achieve their aim as they chase for their first Champions League title since 1996.
They came close to winning the European silverware in 2017 but lost to Los Blancos at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.
Juve are now hoping they can persuade their former stat to become their new manager with Maurizio Sarri's future doubtful at the club despite having a deal with them until 2022.
Zidane spent five years at the Allianz Stadium and won two league titles among several other trophies in Turin.
Meanwhile, SunSport reports that the three-time Champions League winning manager never misses a chance to return to Piedmont for holidays.
The Frenchman has the backing of the club's president Florentino Perez but the publication recounts he often has issues with his players.
One of the major reasons that might push home to consider moving to Italy on a permanent basis when the season is over.
