Zinedine Zidane has his sights set on managing in the Premier League next season and is monitoring Jose Mourinho’s situation at Manchester United, according to reports in France.

French outlet L’Equipe, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the former Real Madrid boss is keen on a return to management next season and that he would love to move to the Premier League.

The 46-year-old France legend is currently out of a job after having quit as Real Madrid manager at the end of last season, after having guided the Spanish side to their third successive Champions League triumph.

The same report says that Zidane is now already considering his next move and would be keen on taking over at a Premier League club.

It is also claimed that the former Real Madrid star is especially keen on the prospect of taking over at Manchester United, should Mourinho’s reign at Old Trafford come to a premature end.

Mourinho has cast a frustrated figure at United in recent months after his side finished in second place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last season.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently gearing up for their trip to Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
