It's been three months since Zinedine Zidane made a decision to walk out on the contract he had at Real Madrid, leaving after winning three Champions League titles. The 46-year-old has now revealed that he will return to management "soon" following a period away from the game.

The former Real Madrid boss has told friends he expects a call from Old Trafford chiefs if the crisis engulfing Jose Mourinho spirals out of control.

Zidane replaced Rafa Benitez at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2016 and led Madrid to two FIFA Club World Cups, two UEFA Super Cups, a LaLiga triumph and the 2017 Supercopa de Espana, over and above the Champions League crowns.

It's not known where his next job will be, but in England it's been suggested he could take over at Manchester United.

"This is what I like and what I have done all my life".

The Frenchman put in a solid performance as captain in Man United's opening game of the new Premier League season against Leicester City in a 2-1 win, but in the three games since he has struggled to have the same impact.

Toni Kroos, Thiago Alcantara, James Rodriguez and Edinson Cavani are said to be among a list of names that Zidane would like to join him in Manchester should he be appointed as Mourinho's successor.
