FORMER Real Madrid manager, Zinadine Zidane, reportedly turned his back on the possibity of him replacing out of favour Olegunnar Solskjaer at the Theatre of Dreams. However, new reports say he is now keen on taking on the job.
According to the report posted by Daily Record, Zidane is now increasingly ‘attracted’ to the prospect of replacing Solskjaer” if the Norwegian eventually decides or is compelled to take the Old Trafford’s exit door.
The Frenchman’s U-turn, the paper reports, is predicated more on the prospect of teaming up with two of his former players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane, in addition to joining his compatriot, Paul Pogba.
The paper also reports that Red Devils’ intermediaries have made substantial progress in talks to have the currently out of work Zidane take over from the Norwagian at Old Trafford in the summer.
With the team currently performing below par and sitting sixth ehind Arsenal with just 17 points from a possible 33, the clamour for a new manager for the club is becoming louder. The urgency is however, encumbered by the sharp division in the boardroom over the matter.
