ZINEDINE ZIDANE is finally ready to say ‘yes’ to the job at Paris Saint-Germain – opening the door for Mauricio Pochettino to join Manchester United.
Former Tottenham manager Poch is one of the names linked with becoming the next permanent manager at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have appointed Ralf Rangnick as caretaker manager until the end of the season after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November.
But he will move upstairs in the summer as the club look for a permanent successor.
French legend Zidane has been unemployed since he left Real Madrid at the end of last season after leading them to three Champions League titles during his two terms.
Now it’s a spanish store Marca announced that he would return to mining in his homeland.
And many people in the game believe that he is joining PSG.
That means the Ligue 1 leaders will have to expel Pochettino – with United ready to take the plunge if he loses his job.

Zidane himself has links to United, but if reports are accurate, he could still help the Premier League side solve their management problems.
ZZ was supposed to join PSG in the summer but they decided to stick with Pochettino.
But Poch is said to be hoping to land a United gig amid uncertainty over his future.
He may have led PSG back to the top of the league after missing out on the title last year but he has faced criticism for his tactics.
