Zinedine Zidane prefers Manchester United role to Bayern Munich

According to L’Équipe, a deal for Zinedine Zidane to become the next manager of Bayern Munich from next season faces hurdles before it can be agreed, with one of the biggest problems facing the Bundesliga giants being that the Frenchman would prefer a move to Manchester United. 

The paper has confirmed the earlier reports that a deal between Zidane and Bayern is close, but while the German team are extremely keen on the prospect, the three-time Champions League-winning manager with Real Madrid holds some reservations about the prospect. 

He respects that Bayern would provide him with the chance to win titles immediately, but is thought to find the German language and life in Bavaria to be a major obstacle, with L’Équipe reporting that he is instead closely monitoring the situation at Manchester United.

INEOS have already been shown to be keen in the prospect of Zidane becoming the face of a new era at the English club, and while he also cannot speak the language, he currently has a better grasp of understanding it than German.
