‘Sudden acceleration’ in Manchester United’s pursuit of Zinedine Zidane
An update concerning Manchester United’s reported interest in Zinedine Zidane has emerged recently.
Solskjaer’s Manchester United struggles
Manchester United are, of course, currently being managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
However, it has become obvious that the Norwegian is simply not at the level required to take the current Man United squad and challenge the likes of Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel.
This has become increasingly more obvious over the last several weeks when Ole’s Man United have been convincingly beaten by both Manchester City and Liverpool.
And with United’s title challenge already looking to be over, the Reds already out of the League Cup and struggling in a fairly weak Champions League group, it is fair to say that United fans would all probably like to see Solskjaer sacked as soon as possible.
Manchester United accelerate Zidane pursuit?
Of late, two managers have been the most heavily linked with the Manchester United job.
These men are Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers and Zinedine Zidane, who last managed Real Madrid.

Now, as mentioned above, a fresh update concerning Manchester United’s reported interest in Zidane has come to light.
According to journalist Rudy Galetti, Man United’s links to Zidane are more than just a simple suggestion and there has been a sudden acceleration. He adds that Man United now really hope to convince the Frenchman to be their new boss:
🚨💣 #Zidane–#ManUtd is more than a simple suggestion: in the last few hours there has been a sudden acceleration and #RedDevils now really hope to convince the 🇫🇷 manager to accept the #MUFC bench.
⏳ The next 48 hours will be decisive. 🐓⚽#EPL #Transfers #Calciomercato
