Zidane justified in Madrid departure - Pires

  Zidane justified in Madrid departure - Pires Robert Pires has encouraged Zinedine Zidane to consider the Premier League as an outlet for his inherent competitiveness.Zinedine Zidane made the right decision to leave Real Madrid and will continue to flourish as a coach, according to former team-mate Robert Pires.

Reports from France have indicated that Real Madrid reached an agreement in principle to sign Sadio Mane from Liverpool this summer prior to Zinedine Zidane’s departure.

It’s claimed by France Football that the Senegalese winger had been lined up as Real Madrid’s first marquee signing for the summer as president Florentino Perez looks to bolster his side.

However, a deal has seemingly been thrown into doubt after it was confirmed last week that Zidane was stepping down from his role as Real’s manager.

It’s claimed in the somewhat speculative report that Mane remains keen to become a Real Madrid player someday and that he is open to joining the club this summer.

Chelsea set to target Zidane after shock Madrid exit

  Chelsea set to target Zidane after shock Madrid exit Chelsea are reportedly set to try and convince outgoing Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane to make the move to West London and take charge at Stamford Bridge. The decision of Zidane to leave Real Madrid after an incredibly successful three years at the helm shocked many fans and pundits alike, and despite saying he isn’t looking to manage another team just yet, the Daily Mail report Chelsea will seek to change his mind. With Maurizio Sarri now thought to no longer be the de facto replacement to current manager Antonio Conte, other names like Laurent Blanc and Avram Grant have entered the ring. Indeed, as of the time of writing, Conte is still in charge at Chelsea. With the holidaying director Marina Granovskaia returning to London next week, the termination of the Italian’s contract is expected then. Zidane won the Champions League at every attempt with Los Blancos, and finished the 2016/17 La Liga season at the top of the pile. The Frenchman said upon the conclusion of his press conference where he announced his resignation, “I’m not going to coach another team right now.” “I’m not looking for another team.” Roman Abramovich has recently withdrawn plans to expand Stamford Bridge in protest at ongoing visa issues, but the twisting of Zidane’s arm to take another management job would be a move of considerable intent to return Chelsea to Champions League glory.

Although, France Football also reiterate that Real are yet to convince Liverpool to sell one of their prized assets.

The Reds will surely refuse to sanction any sale of Mane this summer given the impressive feats he reached during last season’s success, along with the strong relationships he has formed with Liverpool’s attacking players.
