Sir Jim Ratcliffe Eyes Zinedine Zidane As Next Manchester United Manager

Following his minority takeover of Manchester United, British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe reportedly has grand ambitions for the club’s future. Ratcliffe has already made significant changes behind the scenes, including appointing Omar Berrada as CEO and pursuing Dan Ashworth as sporting director.

With pressure mounting on current manager Erik ten Hag after United’s recent 2-1 home defeat to Fulham, Ratcliffe is rumored to be considering an audacious move for Zinedine Zidane as the next manager of Manchester United. Zidane, known for his illustrious playing career with clubs like Juventus and Real Madrid, achieved remarkable success as Real Madrid’s manager, winning three consecutive Champions League titles and a La Liga title. Although Zidane has been out of management since leaving Real Madrid in 2021, Ratcliffe hopes to lure him back to football by offering him the opportunity to lead United’s revolution.

The move comes amid reports of tension between Ten Hag and star player Marcus Rashford, with their relationship reportedly at breaking point following an incident involving the striker. Additionally, another United forward, Antony, is under scrutiny for his lackluster performance, with the club potentially considering offloading the £86 million winger if the right offer comes along.
