Ex-Madrid manager Zidane eyes return to football management after rejecting Manchester United

Zinedine Zidane is reportedly keen on returning to football management this summer, according to Marca

The 50-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best coaches in the world. 

He led Real Madrid to an incredible Champions League treble and several other trophies during his first stint as manager at the Santiago Bernabeu. 

His return to the Spanish capital in 2019 saw Los Blancos seal the La Liga crown and the Spanish Super Cup. 

However, the former France international left his role in 2021 because he felt the club no longer had faith in him

Zidane was linked with Manchester United last season after they dismissed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

But he rejected their approaches, and United ultimately appointed Erik ten Hag as their manager. 

The 50-year-old now wants a return to management this summer after being out of work for two years. 

Several European clubs have been credited with an interest in him including Madrid.

However, a third stint is unlikely with Carlo Ancelotti expected to continue next season. 

Juventus could be an option for Zidane, who played for the Serie A outfit between 1996 and 2001. Paris Saint-Germain is another possible destination.

The Parisians are closing in on a record 11th league title, but a Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich means the club will once again be without European success.
