Zinedine Zidane has already given precise answer to taking Man Utd job
Trends have already started recommending that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be fired after the crushing 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.
United fell to a defeat in Bern despite new player Cristiano Ronaldo putting them 1-0 up against the Swiss champions.
And with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer frequently coming under criticism despite holding the best Manchester United record in the post-Alex Ferguson era, rumors have already linked other managers to the job.
The most linked have been Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane as they look to take on a position befitting of their statuses.
Zidane has been rumored to join United for years, particularly since his Champions League triumphs with Real Madrid.
Winning three back-to-back European titles with Los Blancos, Zidane has one of the highest reputations in world football.
But a move may not be on the cards as he’s reportedly shown no interest whatsoever in taking a job in England.

And Zidane’s agent Alain Migliaccio said as much in 2018 when Zidane was being tipped to succeed Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese manager was succeeded with Solskjaer in a temporary berth before the Norwegian started to impress at the helm.
But Zidane would not have examined the role if he was approached, according to Migliaccio.
“I do not think that he will manage in England,” the Frenchman said.
“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.”
Solskjaer is yet to win a major tournament in United colours as a manager despite winning nine in his time at Old Trafford as a player.
But the signings of Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane will likely drive him to those levels.
United continue their spell at the top of the Premier League table as they face West Ham at the London Stadium.
