Huge job lined up for Zinedine Zidane?


Having been without a job for a full season, French boss Zinedine Zidane could soon be set for a return to club management.

Zidane's sabbatical looks set to be over, with journalist Omar Altundag, according to Get French Football News, having claimed that the former Real Madrid head coach is on the verge of being appointed as the new manager at the Paris Saint-Germain helm, pending Mauricio Pochettino's sacking.

It is reported that the Parisians have made an "obscene" offer to bring the three-time UEFA Champions League-winning coach to the Parc des Princes, and that the deal is now very likely to be completed.

It is understood that Zidane has been the Ligue 1 champions' favourite for the role for a while now, and his planned appointment is said to have been handled by the Emir of Qatar himself, without anyone else at the club having been kept informed about it.

PSG have also confirmed the arrival of Luis Campos as football advisor, effective immediately, with sporting director Leonardo understood to have left the club.
