Frenchman Zinedine Zidane has reportedly responded to Manchester United’s offer, with reports suggesting he turned down the chance to coach the Red Devils.
Zidane has emerged as the favorite to take over at Old Trafford following the sacking of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday morning.
United decided today to sack Solskjaer after a poor start to the season following their 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday.
Zidane immediately became a target for Manchester United after leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season.
But Spanish media outlet COPE says the Premier League club will have to find another manager.
According to COPE, Zidane has already spoken to United and told them he does not want a vacancy at Old Trafford.
It is reported that Zidane feels he is not ready to train in English, and that his wife does not want to move to Manchester.
It has also been claimed that Zidane is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain, which could make Mauricio Pochettino a United target.
Zidane has won everything in his two coaches at Real Madrid, including three Champions League titles.
Zidane said at the end of last season that he wanted to rest for a season.
And it seems that even Manchester United have failed to persuade him to reverse his decision and return to management immediately.
