Recent reports have claimed, Chelsea could look to entice the Real Madrid legend to Stamford Bridge

According to reports from the Sun, directors at the club could speak to Zidane to see if he has any interest in becoming the club’s manager next season.

The  Frenchman shocked the footballing world with his resignation just barely days after securing a third straight champions league crown for Real Madrid, citing his satisfaction as majorly the reason for such surprising decision.

Reports from the British news outlet now claim the Blues will look to make the legend its next club manager amid Antonio Conte’s impending departure from Stamford Bridge during the summer.

Although the reports also state, the London outfit could turn their attention toward Laurent Blanc should Zidane not be interested in a swift return to management.

Chelsea were initially interested in Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri but were reportedly deterred over the Italian ’s inexplicable behaviour, with the 59-year-old fined recently for aiming a homophobic jibe at Italy Manager Roberto Mancini.

The Blues non-participation in the Champions League next term and the uncertain future of its manager has casted doubts over the club’s ability to retain its best players amid reported interests from other clubs.
