According to L'Equipe, Zinedine Zidane is interested in a move to England - and wants to become the next Manchester United manager for the start of the 2019-20 season.

"If that happens, I think we will see a breakout of peace between Pogba and Mourinho and Raiola and Man United".

The 20-time English champions finished in second spot in the Premier League last term.

United insist the club's £89million record signing will not be sold but Pogba has set his heart on a move to Spain.

However, the World Cup-winning midfielder impressed for Manchester United in their opening Premier League game against Leicester City, which led to Jose praising him.

The Sun reported in July that Zidane was top of United's shortlist should Mourinho leave the club.

Zinedine Zidane wants to return to football club management and has reportedly set his sights on the Premier League and Manchester United .

Having won the UEFA Champions League thrice and the LaLiga title in two and half seasons at the Spanish giants, the 46-year-old has been touted as the ideal candidate to lead a new project at the Red Devils.

Old Trafford boss Mourinho has "been at odds with United's hierarchy this summer", says the Metro, after a frustrating pre-season.

Pogba's stock is high following his performances in Russian Federation to fuel speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.

There are not many Premier League clubs that would release this much information in the hope of gaining positive coverage in the media, yet United continue to believe this is a useful way of controlling the news agenda around the club and turning negativity into something a little more palatable.

Pogba has refused to quell the uncertainty over his future and said: "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

United gaffer Jose Mourinho claims he "needed six changes not three" in his side's season opener, with Anthony Martial seeing no game as other options had to take priority.
