Zidane led Los Blancos to three consecutive Champions League wins, while also bagging the La Liga title in 2017.

And he has since been tipped to replace Jose Mourinho following the Portuguese’s struggles at United this season.

Zidane was renowned for his attacking style of play in the Spanish capital.

And he could be just the man to bring the good times back to Old Trafford, although Bayern Munich could also compete for his services with Niko Kovac on the brink.

Son Enzo told Diario AS: “We all know that my father loves football and loves to coach.

“It’s most likely that he will return to coaching soon.

“Now he is resting because it’s something he needed.

“Even though managing Madrid is beautiful, it’s tough and a lot of work.”
