Transfer: Zidane makes contacts with Manchester United, wants Mourinho's job

Paul Scholes names his all-time Man Utd teammate XI

In his first season, under former boss Louis van Gaal, he made 16 league appearances - his most at Old Trafford during a single league campaign.

Zidane was linked with the France manager's job but Didier Deschamps made a decision to continue in the role following their World Cup triumph.

The 46-year-old is now out of work after he resigned as Real Madrid manager in May just five days after guiding the club to their third consecutive Champions League trophy.

Zinedine Zidane wants to manage in the Premier League next season and is keeping tabs on Jose Mourinho's situation at Manchester United, according to reports in France.

According to L'Equipe, the 46-year-old is now keen to test his ability in the English top flight, and is especially interested in taking charge of Manchester United. The Frenchman is still relatively new to management having only worked as three years at Real Madrid and could potentially build a legacy at Old Trafford.

Bakayoko to undergo AC Milan medical
The one-time capped France global had a tough year with the Blues, during which he failed to impose himself under Antonio Conte. Tiemoue Bakayoko is set to join AC Milan on loan with a view to a permanent deal, according to reports in the British media.

Mourinho, however, has been at odds with United's hierarchy this summer, primarily over their refusal to sign an experienced central defender before the transfer window closed last Thursday.

Zinedine Zidane has emerged as the new favourite to take over from Jose Mourinho as manager of Manchester United.

Now with Mourinho's job possibly under threat following a chaotic pre-season that saw the ex-Chelsea manager in verbal conflict with United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over transfer policy, Zidane could be the man to step in.

United did win their opening Premier League fixture 2-1 against Leicester City on Friday evening but Mourinho has already made clear his belief he doesn't have the squad to challenge reigning champions Manchester City.
