It is believed Zidane is among those who have been earmarked for the Old Trafford job as pressure mounts on Solskjaer to quit.

However, according to ESPN, the Frenchman has no plan of taking over the reins at the Theatre of Dreams.

This is despite the former France international currently having no job after quitting Real Madrid.

The World Cup winner led Los Blancos in two separate stints, with his last coming at an end in the summer.

In his first, Zidane masterminded Madrid's three successive Champions League triumphs before as well as a La Liga title in 2017.

However, Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo revealed the 1998 Ballon d'Or winner is not looking to return to management soon as he is looking to recharge his batteries.
