Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is being lined up as a potential replacement of Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid should the Frenchman leaves the Galacticos anytime soon, as per the reports from Don Balon.
It is being reported that Didier Deschamps’ future as French team’s boss is in scrutiny and if anything uncertain happens, the Les Bleus will target Madrid boss – Zinedine Zidane – to replace the long-serving 48-year-old. Till date, nothing concrete is reported, and the aforementioned source has also stated that Zidane will certainly not give up on his current job, but the Los Blancos are bracing themselves for a potential exit.
Zidane has hardly put a foot wrong since the day he took the reins of Los Blancos, but working for the national team always seem to be a temptation, hence Real Madrid do have a thing or two to worry about.
The former France international guided Real to lift their 11th Champions League title last year and is leading the La Liga log with one point with two games in hand, but it is fair to say that nothing is certain in the sport.
Jose Mourinho, on his part, already has Real Madrid in his CV and certainly know how to manage a club like Real Madrid. He was in charge of the club from 2010 to 2013 before returning to Chelsea. During the tenure, the former Porto boss guided them to lift the La Liga title (2012) in four years and since then, they haven’t lifted the same crown even once.
The Portuguese has been a revelation at Manchester United this term and is active in all four competition so far. Even though they are sixth in the Premier League, his style of play has received a lot of accolades. From defence to attack, his players are performing like never before.
Besides all of this, just a few days back, it was reported that Manchester United will offer Jose Mourinho a new and improved five-year deal at the end of the season, hence the link of Real Madrid might be nothing but a baseless rumour.
