Manchester United have not yet met with Zinedine Zidane about permanently replacing Jose Mourinho

It had been claimed that the 1998 World Cup winner was contemplating an offer from the Red Devils about returning to management.

Following Jose Mourinho's sacking at Old Trafford on Tuesday after the club lost 3-1 against Liverpool, United have acted fast to bring in a caretaker boss.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been handed responsibility until the summer to steer the side back up the table as they currently languish in sixth spot.

But while reports state that Zidane is considering testing himself in the Premier League, the Manchester Evening News state he has never had direct dialogue with United.

Speaking in October, his agent Alain Migliaccio: "I do not think that [Zidane] will manage in England. It is much less his style.

"I have discussed it with him, it does not really attract him. He has chosen to have a year out, he will not dive in again before that is over."

SunSport exclusively revealed that Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is United's No 1 target next summer, but it will cost them £40million to prise him away.

A SunSport poll recently revealed though that Zidane is the top choice for United fans, with a whopping 44 per cent wanting him to take the reins at the Theatre of Dreams.

Zizou is currently a free agent having left Real Madrid in the summer, where he won three successive Champions League titles.
