Having been unemployed since departing Real Madrid in 2021, Zinedine Zidane would reportedly consider a return to coaching at these three clubs.

The Frenchman has not worked since leaving Los Blancos two years following a second spell at the European giants, with it believed that he was eager to replace Didier Deschamps as France boss.

Zidane had reportedly been waiting in the wings to succeed his ex-international teammate until the French Football Federation (FFF) extended Deschamps' contract despite losing the 2022 FIFA World Cup final.

The legendary retired footballer had previously been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea, but reportedly has little interest in working in England, having spent his playing days in his home country, Italy and Spain.

According to The Athletic, Zidane would therefore only consider working as a manager in those leagues familiar to him, with a potential return to Real being touted for the 50-year-old.

Reports in recent weeks have suggested the three-time UEFA Champions League-winning coach would be open to a third stint at Los Blancos should Carlo Ancelotti depart at the end of the season.

It is claimed Zidane would also struggle to turn down an offer from Italian giants Juventus, whom he represented as a player between 1996 and 2001 before his big-money move to LaLiga.

The 1998 FIFA World Cup winner has also reportedly left the door open to Ligue 1 giants Marseille, his hometown club.

While thought of as a top coach due to the success he enjoyed at Real, it is believed Zidane is not interested in an orthodox managerial career that would see him move from club to club, trying his hand in different divisions.
