Manchester United are trying to convince Zinedine Zidane to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford, according to The Times via Daily Mail.

Pressure is increasing on Solskjaer with United sixth in the league after a 5-0 thrashing at home by Liverpool, as well as a comprehensive 2-0 defeat by Manchester City.

Zidane has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid for the second time at the end of last season.

The Frenchman’s record at Real Madrid is as impressive as it gets, winning three Champions Leagues and two LaLiga titles as a coach during his two spells.

Manchester United are reportedly hopeful that Zidane’s relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane can help convince him to become Manchester United boss.

Zidane coached both players, who joined during the summer transfer window, during his time at Real Madrid.
