Manchester United could approach Zinedine Zidane to replace Erik ten Hag

Manchester United could hold talks with former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane to be their next manager.

According to a report from Give Me Sport, Manchester United are interested in having Zinedine Zidane on their bench starting next season amidst uncertainty over the future of Erik ten Hag. With the Red Devils struggling in the ongoing campaign, the Dutch manager could be shown the exit door after the end of the season.

Erik ten Hag to be sacked?

Erik ten Hag had a good first season at the English club. But things have not gone according to plan for them this time around. Injuries to key players have caused a lot of problems, and Manchester United have struggled in all competitions apart from the FA Cup, where they will meet rivals Manchester City in the final in two weeks.

The Red Devils have had one of the worst seasons in their recent history. With the club struggling on all fronts, their new technical director Jason Wilcox is assessing whether ten Hag should continue at Old Trafford.

Their new part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS have already made major changes at key positions in the club. They are looking to revive the club, and the upcoming summer transfer window could prove to be very important.

While Manchester United have not yet made a final decision regarding the future of ten Hag, people at the club have started to look for potential replacements and quite a few top managers have been linked with the English giants.

Ratcliffe wants Zidane on the Manchester United bench

Zinedine Zidane is on the wishlist of Ratcliffe, who wishes to hold talks with the Frenchman. The former Real Madrid manager has an impressive track record, as he led Los Blancos to three consecutive Champions League titles during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Manchester United feel Zidane could play a pivotal role in helping them revive the club. As a result, they could end up having a conversation with the French manager about the top job. Reports suggest that he is interested in the job at Old Trafford, and the fact that he has turned down the opportunity to coach Bayern Munich is a boost for the Red Devils.

It will be interesting to see if Manchester United do actually end up talking to Zidane about the managerial position. Given the kind of track record he has, his arrival could be a massive boost for the club and their fans.
