Zinedine Zidane has held talks with Manchester United ambassador Mikael Silvestre in Dubai. Silvestre, who played with Zidane in the French national team, uploaded in picture posing with his former teammate on Instagram.
He captioned the post: “Catching up with some friends (plus) the one (and) only Zidane.”
Silvestre, who lifted the Champions League, FA Cup and Premier League trophy with United is now an ambassador for the club.
This month United sacked Jose Mourinho and hired club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as caretaker boss.
Despite Solskjaer winning his opening two games for United it is believed Old Trafford chiefs will be looking for a predecessor for the start of next season.
Zidane, who guided Real Madrid to three Champions League success and one La Liga title, is on United’s wish list.
However, SunSport understands Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is favourite for job.
Pochettino, who been at Tottenham since 2014, has not ruled himself out of the role at United.
However, Old Trafford bosses will have to make their move next season for the Argentine.
