Zidane is linked with a move to Manchester United

And, in order to avoid a repeat, Mourinho supposedly insisted the club put a clause in his Lyon deal.

Zinedine Zidane has fuelled speculation that he could be being lined up to replace Jose Mourinho at Manchester United by revealing that he plans to return to management "soon".

"I am sure that I will coach again before long", he told TVE, as quoted by Marca.

"No doubt about it, I'll be back coaching soon, because it's what I enjoy", he said.

The Reds' top brass are aware the French legend, who quit the Bernabeu in the summer after delivering three consecutive Champions League Final triumphs, won't be a free agent for ever.

Sitting tenth in the table with six points after four games is far from Manchester United standards, and the resulting pressure on manager Jose Mourinho is telling.

The right thing for them - and ultimately the right thing for us - is to give them game time". It's developing the England team".

The Portuguese star - who's been hailed by Jose Mourinho as the best full-back in Europe in his age group - is now set to be included in the first team squad for this weekend's trip to Vicarage Road.

He said: "No, I think, obviously they won their last game".

The 55-year-old is under increasing pressure at United after suffering back-to-back defeats before the worldwide break.

"Hopefully, it is always a worrying time at clubs, you want your players to come back fit and well".

David de Gea would remain United's go-to man between the sticks, with Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw in the full-back positions.
