Chelsea To Approach Former Madrid Boss

Chelsea are reportedly considering an offer for former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

The Sun reports that 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 Zidane and talks have advanced this week over when they should make their move.

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.

Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard — linked with a move away from the club with his contract up in 2020 — idolises Zidane.
