Zidane to Man Utd gathering momentum with ‘close links’ to star players
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future is hanging in the balance, according to the Mirror, and games against Watford and Chelsea look absolutely key to what happens next.
The report claims that there has been contact between former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane and United, with the Frenchman believed to be a frontrunner should a change happen.
The duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane both have good relationships with Zidane, having worked successfully at Real Madrid – United will be hoping some good words can be put in should Zidane emerge as the replacement manager of choice.
The main issue for Man Utd is that Zinedine Zidane is said to be not keen on joining any club mid-way through a season.
