Zinedine Zidane wants to replace Jose Mourinho next year

Diogo Dalot is stepping up his recovery with Manchester United

The Frenchman is still relatively new to management having only worked as three years at Real Madrid and could potentially build a legacy at Old Trafford.

Since the shock resignment at Real, Zidane has been linked with the Qatar national team job and a technical advisory role with former club Juventus in before the speculation was quickly dismissed.

Mourinho is under enormous pressure win the Premier League this season after failing to win a trophy at Old Trafford last campaign.

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

Not much has been heard from the French World Cup victor since then although there were whispers that he was placed on a shortlist by Manchester United management as a backup should Mourinho decide to depart Old Trafford.

Indeed, it is understood that the mood at the club is excellent and United feel as though they have the talent at their disposal to challenge for the Premier League title this season.

This is despite finishing 19 points behind Manchester City.

He has previously played for Real Colorado as part of the USA soccer development academy and was earmarked for a place in United's U18s squad this season after impressing on trial last season.

The Portuguese manager had warned United's board that the club face a "difficult season" if the squad was not improved.

The same article states that Manchester United believe the summer signing will take a full part in the training session but the suggestion is that Dalot will require a couple of weeks to get up to speed.

And Mourinho also disagreed with Woodward over the future of Anthony Martial, with the United manager ready to offload the French forward as opposed to wasting him on the bench.
