It’s fair to say a large number of Manchester United fans are happy with the rumours doing the rounds tonight involving Zinedine Zidane potentially replacing Jose Mourinho as the club’s manager.
Mourinho has not had the best of times at Old Trafford in his two years in charge, and speculation in France has linked former Real Madrid boss Zidane with looking for a job in the Premier League, with United his favoured choice.
This story will supposedly be in tomorrow’s L’Equipe, as reported by Get French Football News on Twitter, and many United fans believe this could be a good move.
Zinedine Zidane is eyeing the Premier League & "particularly" Manchester United as his next managerial career move, according to tomorrow's L'Équipe.

It’s hard to argue with that, to be fair, with the Frenchman doing great work to win the Champions League three times in less than three full seasons in charge of Real Madrid.
Zidane stepped down at the Bernabeu this summer, and it seems he’s keen on a new challenge in England, according to L’Equipe.
These United fans would love it to happen and are particularly excited about how under-achieving midfield star Paul Pogba could finally hit top form under his fellow countryman, whose attacking style would surely be more suited to his natural game…
I'd bin Mourinho in a heart beat for Zidane next summer. If Mourinho is still at United next summer, we risk losing Pogba (and Martial). Those two under Zidane???

Pogba under Zidane could be untouchable

Woodward would do anything for this imo, Zidane a massive marketable name who could keep Ed's prized possessions Pogba and Martial https://t.co/6WfliBGETF

I’d be quite sceptical if Zidane became our manager but he would turn Pogba into a different monster?
