After a tumultuous summer and seemingly unproductive transfer window, United began the new season with a 2-1 win over Leicester, before succumbing to a shock 3-2 defeat at Brighton.

And now, according to the Mail, United’s hierarchy recognise the need for a contingency plan in case of a third-season implosion from ‘The Special One’, with Zidane having told close friends that expects an approach.


The Frenchman left Real Madrid at the end of last season after winning three consecutive Champions League trophies.

He has not taken a new job for the 2018/19 campaign and currently remains a free agent, though is understood to be eyeing up a Premier League move.

Manchester United face an important match against Tottenham at Old Trafford on Monday night.
