Zinedine Zidane is anxiously waiting to be named Manchester United’s new manager to replace Jose Mourinho, according to reports.

It is an open secret that Mourinho is presently under intense pressure at United as results are not going his way and there are talks of a divided Dressing Room.

Another defeat this weekend could see United fall into the bottom half of the Premier League table having previously recorded negative results against Wolves and Derby – a draw and a loss respectively.

Indeed, Mourinho is on the brink, and there have been suggestions a defeat to West Ham on Saturday could see the former Chelsea boss dismissed from his position.

There is also discontent at Old Trafford concerning Mourinho’s treatment of Paul Pogba, the midfielder, as well as a number of United’s other first-team players, including defenders Phil Jones and Eric Bailly, and forward Marcus Rashford.

And, according to The Sun, Zidane is waiting in the wings to swoop in should Mourinho eventually get the axe.

The former Real Madrid boss, who left the Bernabeu at the end of last season on the back of winning three successive European Cups, is ‘desperate’ to land the job and has reportedly turned down numerous other offers to make himself available for the position at United.

He is also said to have started taking English lessons in preparation of heading to these shores, while the France legend was also pictured in London earlier this week.
