Zinedine Zidane to Manchester United?
Zinedine Zidane has been recently linked with Manchester United’s bench. The reason for this is the nasty relationship between Jose Mourinho and the vice-chairman Ed Woodward. Moreover, in the dressing room, there is an evident discomfort around the tactics of Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese coach is under criticism due to the disappointing start of the season. Thus, several reports named Zinedine Zidane as the next manager of the Red Devils. Additionally, according to Mirror.co.uk, the French coach has a list of players to buy if he takes the job at Old Trafford.
The major obstacle for Zizou to sign for Man Utd.
Toni Kroos, Thiago Alcantara, James Rodriguez, and Edinson Cavani are the four players that Zidane will propose to Ed Woodward. The French coach seems ready to accept a potential offer from Manchester United. His glorious career along with his achievements at Real Madrid are two critical benefits of his choice. At the moment, the atmosphere on the club’s dressing room is very strained, and nothing seems to be improved. However, it is not an easy issue to suck Jose Mourinho. He has a high-valued contract, and as he claimed recently, it is hard to lose his job now.
“They say I’m in danger, but I don’t think so. If they sent me away, do you have any idea how much money they would have to give me?”

Manchester United needs an inspirational manager
Zinedine Zidane seems the suitable manager to succeed Jose Mourinho on United’s bench. However, it needs time for this change, and most importantly it requires a plan. Zidane will need time to organise the new Manchester United and the players that will need. The transfer list of Zizou is composed of four world-class players, which is not easy to be accomplished. So, before Zidane accepts a potential offer from United, he will need guarantees of transfers. The French coach has shown an impressive style of football in Real Madrid with brilliant achievements. At the same time, he inspired all his players to fight together in the field.
This is what Jose Mourinho failed to achieve in Manchester United. He failed to inspire Pogba, Sanchez or Lukaku. The club has not lost its glory, but it has lost the beauty of football. Manchester United’s fans have sorely missed the days of Sir Alex Ferguson, and thus the club needs to focus on the future. And the future is undoubtedly away from the Portuguese manager.
