Chelsea To Sign Zidane To Replace Manager Sarri
Current manager Maurizio Sarri is running out of backers after the 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City as the Blues dropped to sixth in the Premier League.
There is growing support amongst the top brass for Zinedine Zidane and talks have advanced this week over when they should make their move.
Zinedine Zidane ’s incredible Champions League credentials, winning it three times in three years as manager of Real Madrid, are a huge draw for the Blues board.
The 46-year-old is currently not in management and is understood to be very keen on a job in the Premier League.
A move for the legendary French player, who won the World Cup with Les Bleus, would be encouragement for Eden Hazard to sign a new deal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still in pole position, after the interim boss led the Red Devils to an 11-game unbeaten run that ended with the club’s 2-0 defeat to PSG in the Champions League.
But the club’s board were initially leaning towards Zinedine Zidane , with a view to him taking charge next summer.
