Zinedine Zidane has set his sights on landing the managerial job at Juventus, reports RMC Sport.
The Frenchman has been without a job since leaving Real Madrid in 2021, but he has regularly been linked with other clubs.
Paris Saint-Germain have shortlisted Zidane as a top candidate to replace under-fire Christophe Galtier this summer, but he is eyeing the Juve role.
Zidane also rejected an opportunity to manage PSG last year before Galtier’s appointment, as he was keen on the national team job at the time.
With Didier Deschamps extending his contract with France earlier this year, Zidane has been forced to reconsider his options and has identified Juventus as his next destination.
He has also received a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabian giants Al Nassr for the head coach role, where he would reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo, but he wants to stay in Europe.
Zidane is eager to lead his former club even if they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season.
His appointment relies on the future of Massimiliano Allegri, who has a contract until 2025.
The Bianconeri may find it thought to replace the Italian tactician, who has revived their fortunes this season despite off-field issues.
Allegri led Juventus to the semi-finals of the Europa League after his team defeated Sporting CP in the quarter-finals 2-1 on aggregate last night.
The Italian giants also had their 15-point ban overturned temporarily yesterday, which has seen them move to third in the Serie A rankings.
Jose Mourinho and Thiago Motta are also under consideration for the PSG managerial role.
Galtier could continue as the head coach if PSG fail to find any suitable alternatives.
