Manchester United have not contacted former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane over possibly replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to Fabrizio Romano.
And, as to be expected, a number of United fans have been reacting to the update on social media.
Rumours emerged in recent days from Duncan Castles of The Times claiming United have stepped up their attempts to lure the Frenchman to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils hierarchy are reportedly ‘hopeful’ that his close relationships with Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane can help to convince him to join, however, Romano has a different take.
He claimed that United are yet to contact Zidane, who is enjoying his private life and isn’t desperate to work again during the current campaign without a pre-season under his belt.
This is of course not the news fans wanted to hear, given the former Real Madrid boss won a remarkable two league titles and three Champions Leagues during his time in the Spanish capital.
Would you like to see Zidane at Old Trafford?
Yes, get him in!
No, stick with Ole for now!
United fans react
@utdreport shared Romano’s update on Zidane on Twitter on Sunday lunchtime.
This is what these United fans had to say in reply, with many making their views known.
“Fabrizio hype. Di Marzio is the only Italian journo we trust these days soz”
“Make it happen @Cristiano”
“I knew it. We are getting Rodgers.”
“All I know is pain”
“Ah sigh we can never have good things”
“Fabrizio is behind the curve he’s tier 5 these days”
