Former Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has been compiling a list of Manchester United transfer targets, if he lands the job, the Mirror UK reports.
The Frenchman has told friends he expects a call from Old Trafford chiefs, if the crisis engulfing Jose Mourinho spirals out of control.
Players on Zidane’s list include Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos, Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara, James Rodriguez who is currently on loan at Bayern from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani.
It is believed that Zidane has a strong ambition to manage in the Premier League and a club like United would complete the dream.
His name has also been the subject of much gossip among the players at their Carrington training ground, where the atmosphere under Mourinho is said to be strained.
