L'Equipe: Zidane wants to take over at Manchester United

EPL Manchester United Overcome Leicester City In Season Opener Manchester United made a winning start in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory over Leicester City

Zinedine Zidane wants to return to football club management and has reportedly set his sights on the Premier League and Manchester United.

The report goes on to state that the Champions League winning manager is keen on taking Jose Mourinho's job and managing Manchester United.

The Dutchman's honours in Manchester include four Premier League titles- three consecutive between 2006 and 2009- and memorably saved the decisive penalty from Nicolas Anelka to win the Champions League for Manchester United over Chelsea in Moscow in 2008. He became the first coach to win the competition three times in a row.

Last month, reports claimed that United have shortlisted Zidane as one of the candidates to replace Mourinho if the 55-year-old leaves at the end of the season. A hard summer in the transfer window, that saw a lot of controversy over differences in priorities between the club and manager Jose Mourinho, has finally prompted a move that had been considered for some time.

Shaw headed into this season without having scored a single professional goal across 134 appearances, but he changed that statistic just moments from time, and his subsequent celebration made sure everyone knew how much that meant to him.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Anthony Martial was left on the bench in Manchester United's Premier League opener at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils forced into using other options.

Since the shock resignment at Real, Zidane has been linked with the Qatar national team job and a technical advisory role with former club Juventus in before the speculation was quickly dismissed.

During pre-season, Mourinho lamented the lack to acquire priority targets which seemingly aroused tension between him and club Chief Executive Ed Woodward.
