Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly keen to work with former boss, Zinedine Zidane, if he is appointed as replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Despite United’s poor start to the season, which has seen United take just two wins from our last six games, Solskjaer continues to keep a hold of his job at the club for now.

However multiple reports say that the Old Trafford hierarchy are looking for a potential replacement for the Norwegian, who is expected to turn things around after the international break.

Zidane is one of the names touted to take over from the 48 year old, who was appointed after the sack of Jose Mourinho, and Manchester Evening News are reporting that Ronaldo has already told United he’s ready to work with the Frenchman if he’s appointed.

Both men have previously worked together during their days at Real Madrid — a relationship that brought three UEFA Champions League titles.

Zidane, however, is reluctant to take over at Old Trafford, as he wants to manage the French national team.
