Zidane’s agent reveals Frenchman not interested in Premier League

Zinedine Zidane is the most wanted manager in the world of football right now. The manager left Real Madrid in the summer and is still a free agent, and it is no surprise that clubs are chasing him.

The Frenchman won 3 UEFA Champions League trophies in 2.5 years at Bernabeu. He brought out the best in Madrid’s players and made them a force to reckon with after the disastrous spell under Rafa Benitez.

The manager isn’t someone who loves spending big in the market too, and that’s just a bonus for the club that hires him. Rumours around Europe have been linking him with a move to Manchester United as Jose Mourinho struggles to keep his job.

However, the agent of Zidane has ruled out a move to England. The long-time agent has revealed that the style of football in the Premier League does not interest the manager and he is not willing to join United.

“He was exhausted in terms of nerves, he has chosen to take a sabbatical year, and he won't go back on that,” said his agent in an interview with Journal du Dimanche.

When questioned about the United rumours, Migliaccio said, “I don't think he'll go to England, it's not his style. I've spoken about it with him, and the truth is that it doesn't attract him.”

The Red Devils have had an awful start to the Premier League season with just 13 points from 8 games. They were humbled by Tottenham and Brighton & Hove in the league, and they were shocking defeated by West Ham United as well late in September.

Reports in Italy meanwhile claim that Juventus are keen on getting Zidane as their CEO. The Old Lady are looking for a replacement for Beppe Marotta, who has confirmed that he will be leaving the club next month.
