Zinedine Zidane may have admitted that he will likely manage his former club Juventus sometime soon.
The 48-year-old is currently on the payroll of Real Madrid but he had been linked with a move to the Turin-based club on several occasions.
Zidane spent five seasons playing for the Old Lady between 1996 and 2001 and won two Serie A titles in the process.
However, with his future at the Santiago Bernabeu uncertain, the Frenchman might consider handing the defending champions. Football Italia quoted the Frenchman earlier this week.

“Italy is always in my heart. Juventus have always been important to me. I don’t know [if you will see me in Italy again]. Now I’m here. Let’s see.”
Away from that, Zidane felt excited with his players after Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 3-1 at Anfield on Tuesday, April 6.
The victory gives the Spanish outfit an advantage over their counterpart ahead of the second leg of the meeting at Anfield next week. The former midfielder turned football manager said:
“We can be happy with the game we played but there’s a return leg and we must finish the job. But I repeat, we can be happy with the match tonight, because we played a complete game.”
The Frenchman's current deal with Los Blancos expires in 2022 but it is left to be seen if he will see the contract out.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has discountenanced Jurgen Klopp's claims that the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano is not a proper stadium, saying they are proud to play there.
The facility is often used for training sessions by the senior team while Real Madrid Castilla (B team) play their games on the pitch.
Los Blancos are one leg into the semifinals of the Champions League this season following their 3-1 triumph over their Premier League counterparts.
