Italian League champions Juventus are reportedly planning to hire Zinedine Zidane as a replacement for sacked Maurizio Sarri.

The 61-year-old tactician was fired by the Serie A club just one year into his contract at the club following their disappointing ouster from the UEFA Champions League championship.

Both teams played 2-2 aggregate at the end of 180 minutes but Memphis Depay's goal at the Allianz Stadium was all that the French club needed to pull through to the next round.
