He has won champions league 3times : Ronaldo and former boss set for reunion as Manchester united set to replace solskjaer

Man United ‘working to persuade’ Zinedine Zidane to replace Solskjaer

Zinedine Zidane is believed to be keen on managing the France team but Manchester United are ‘working to persuade’ him to change his mind, reports the Sunday Times.

Zidane is one of the most successful coaches of the modern era, having won three Champions League titles and two La Liga trophies with Real Madrid over two spells.

The Sunday Times understands that Zidane is not fully convinced if the United job is right for him.

However, the club are hoping to lure him with the prospect of reuniting with Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane.

Moving to Old Trafford would also help Zidane finally manage Paul Pogba, a player he wanted to sign for Los Blancos. And that could prompt the midfielder to extend his stay at the club.

Meanwhile, there have also been reports of Mauricio Pochettino and Brendan Rodgers being the top candidates to replace an under-fire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
