Ex-Arsenal midfielder convinced Fred to pick Manchester United over Manchester City

Diogo Dalot is stepping up his recovery with Manchester United

According to L'Equipe, Zinedine Zidane is interested in a move to England - and wants to become the next Manchester United manager for the start of the 2019-20 season.

The Frenchman, who has been out of work since May, guided Los Blancos to three consecutive UCL titles, two FIFA Club World Cups and one LaLiga crown in his first senior managerial role.

Dalot joined Manchester United from Portuguese side Porto for £19 but is yet to make an appearance for The Red Devils after arriving with an injury.

Not much has been heard from the French World Cup victor since then although there were whispers that he was placed on a shortlist by Manchester United management as a backup should Mourinho decide to depart Old Trafford.

However, the embattled United boss is adamant that last season's second place finish in the Premier League should be considered the club's biggest achievement in recent history.

The Sun reported in July that Zidane was top of United's shortlist should Mourinho leave the club.

The newspaper claimed that the World Cup-winning midfielder is especially keen on managing Manchester United.

United triumphed 2-1 over Leicester in their first game of the season but that has done little to relieve the pressure on Mourinho, with Paul Pogba amongst those seemingly unhappy.

A lot of the good feeling within the squad at the moment has been helped by the arrival of Fred, the Brazil midfielder who joined United in the summer, as he is seen as gregarious and outgoing and has brought a great deal to training.

And Mourinho also disagreed with Woodward over the future of Anthony Martial, with the United manager ready to offload the French forward as opposed to wasting him on the bench.

United will not sell Pogba, regardless of whether he hands in a transfer request.
