Former Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has already consented to return to management at Old Trafford under one condition, bigbrothergisthub has learned.
Zidane has been connected to taking Erik ten Hag’s place at United this week following the team’s dismal start to the season.
Following Wednesday night’s 3-0 Carabao Cup fourth-round loss to Newcastle United, United supporters expressed their emotions in no uncertain terms.
Since then, the bookmakers have reduced the odds on Ten Hag being fired, making Zidane the front-runner to succeed him as United’s manager.
The former Real Madrid player and manager, it was claimed last month, had consented to return to management on one proviso.
Zidane has consented to return to his old team, Olympique de Marseille, as their next manager, according to the French news source France Blue Provence.
One need has to be fulfilled, according to the article, for Zidane to go back.
It has been reported that in the event that the club’s sale to Saudi Arabia proceeds, Zidane has consented to take over as manager of Marseille.
The powerful Middle Eastern nation has apparently expressed interest in purchasing the French team and hopes to transform it into the Newcastle of France.
Zidane’s proposal for a £260 million transfer budget is said to have been approved by the Saudis.
In an attempt to entice some of the best stars in Europe to the Saudi Professional League, Saudi Arabian teams have been spending big this summer.
The likes of Karim Benzema, Roberto Firmino, Neymar, Ruben Neves, and Riyad Mahrez all abandoned European football for the Middle East during the summer transfer window after Cristiano Ronaldo joined Al Nassr in January. Zinedine Zidane is likely to be the new Manchester united boss, rumours has it. Stay tuned.
