Zinedine Zidane is getting ready to take over as the Manchester United manager when the opportunity presents itself according to reports.
The former Real Madrid boss has repeatedly been linked with the Old Trafford job as a replacement for embattled Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.
According to a report from The Sun, Zidane has started taking English lessons to get himself prepared for the highly coveted job.
Zinedine Zidane’s stock in European football rose recently after he led Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid to three successive Champions League titles in addition to winning the league title during the 2016/17 season.
The French football legend has emerged as the favourite to replace Mourinho who has masterminded the Red Devils’ disappointing start to the season.
Manchester United began the new campaign with a slim 2-1 home win over Leicester City in the Premier League before suffering two successive defeats to Brighton (away) and Tottenham Hotspur (home).
Those defeats heaped more misery on Mourinho but away wins over Burnley and Watford eased the pressure only for his team to record two successive disappointing results against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Derby County.
Manchester United could only play a 1-1 draw in their last league game against Wolves thereby falling eight points off leaders Liverpool.
The Wolves result was followed by the Carabao Cup exit to Championship side Derby County on Tuesday night.
