Paris Saint-Germain are making a move for former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.
PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino has been Manchester United’s top target to replace former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the Old Trafford dugout ever since the club sacked the Norwegian.
Le Parisien says PSG representatives have met with Zidane to discuss the possibility of him taking over at Parc des Princes in the summer.
Sporting director Leonardo and general manager Jean-Claude Blanc, who is also a good friend of Zidane, met with the French head coach at the Royal Monceau hotel to hold talks.
The 49-year-old is unwilling to break his sabbatical so the Parisians are examining the prospect of making him their new manager in the summer.
That leaves Pochettino’s future up in the air amid a raft of reports suggesting he is United’s favourite candidate to take over at the helm.
