Man United manager target Zinedine Zidane has 'already agreed' to new job on one condition

Zinedine Zidane has reportedly already agreed on a return to management under one condition amid Manchester United rumours.

This week, Zidane has been linked with replacing Erik ten Hag at United after yet another poor start to the season.

United fans made their feelings clear after Wednesday night’s 3-0 defeat against Newcastle United in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

Since then, odds have been slashed on Ten Hag being sacked, with Zidane the bookies’ favourite to take over as United boss.

However, it was reported last month that the former Real Madrid player and manager has agreed to return to management on one condition.

According to French news outlet France Blue Provence, Zidane has agreed to return to his former club Olympique de Marseille to become their new manager.

The report stated that one condition must be met for Zidane to return.

It has been said that Zidane has agreed to become Marseille’s new manager if the club’s sale to Saudi Arabia goes ahead.

The Middle East powerhouse has been linked with buying the French side and reportedly dreams of ‘making the club the Newcastle of France’.

It has also been claimed that the Saudis have granted Zidane’s request for a £260 million transfer budget.

This summer, clubs in Saudi Arabia have been splashing the cash in a bid to lure some of Europe’s biggest names to the Saudi Professional League.

After Cristiano Ronaldo joined Al Nassr in January, the likes of Karim Benzema, Roberto Firmino, Neymar, Ruben Neves and Riyad Mahrez all ditched European football for the Middle East during the summer transfer window.
