- Zidane has opened up about his intentions on returning to coaching
- The Frenchman has been out of job since winning the Champions League
- The ex-Real Madrid boss has been linked with Manchester United
Former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has revealed he expects to return to managerial duties soon following links with Manchester United.
The French World Cup winner won his third straight Champions League title with Los Blancos before quitting the club days after.
The 46-year-old is planning a return to coaching in order to continue his brilliant three-year managerial career.
While watching his 12-year-old son Elyaz, in action, he told TVE: "I am sure that I will coach again before long.
"This is what I like and what I have done all my life."
The France legend is reportedly compiling a list of players he would sign in case he becomes manager at Old Trafford soon.
Both United's top staffs Jose Mourinho and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward insist their relationship is strong despite feuds over the summer transfer window.
But with the uncertainties surrounding the Portuguese manager's future at Old Trafford, Zidane is on standby to become the next Red Devils' gaffer.
The highly-rated Frenchman won a La Liga crown, two UEFA Super Cups and two FIFA Club World Cups after replacing Rafael Benitez in January 2016.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that ex-Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has reportedly compiled a list of four star players he will sign should he replace embattled Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford this season.
The Frenchman has been tipped to succeed the Portuguese tactician who is under-fire at the club following his poor start to the ongoing season.
