The French coach, speaking to Spanish state broadcaster TVE, fuelled rumours over his possible move to Manchester United after leaving Real Madrid.

Zinedine Zidane’s return to the dug-out is getting ever closer. The French coach, who left Real Madrid after winning a third consecutive Champions League at the end of last season, spoke to Spanish state broadcaster TVE and revealed he would be back in the dug-out in the near future.

Zidane, accompanying his son at a game in Arnedo in La Rioja said: “No doubt about it, I’ll be back coaching soon, because it’s what I enjoy”.

Rumours link Zidane with Manchester United job

The statement, made during a game being played by his son Elyaz as a player in Xabi Alonso’s Infantil A team, has only increased the rumours that are linking the French coach with the Manchester United job, particularly in light of Mourinho’s troubled situation.

Just today, UK newspaper The Mirror published a Zidane route map to the Man Utd job, which included the signing of Kroos, Thiago Alcántara, James and Cavani.
