Zinedine Zidane’s agent has claimed that the Frenchman isn’t interested in managing Manchester United.

ESPN reports that the former Real Madrid manager has been touted as the replacement for Jose Mourinho.

Zidane left Real Madrid after leading them to three Champions League titles in a row and hasn’t taken over at any club yet.

The Portuguese manager did win the previous game against Newcastle. Mourinho saw his team come back from two goals down to beat Newcastle with a last-minute effort.

However, Alain Migliaccio believes Zidane isn’t interested in coaching in England. Migliaccio was speaking to Le Journal du Dimanche (h/t ESPN) and was quoted as saying:

“I do not think that he will coach in England.

“It is not his style. I have discussed it with him. It is truthfully not appealing.”

Migliaccio was asked if Zidane would be interested in managing Juventus, to which he replied it was possible.

The agent even claimed that the Frenchman could be tempted by “a passion project, a beautiful project — not necessarily in one of Europe’s top clubs.”

The agent added that Zidane would not be managing this year and is on a sabbatical.

ESPN further claims that the Red Devils are not looking to replace Mourinho and dismissed reports suggesting Zidane could be their new manager as “nonsense”.
