Next Chelsea manager: Zinedine Zidane makes major decision on future after Stamford Bridge links
Chelsea news as Zinedine Zidane looks set to make a return to management after two years out of the game

Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has finally made a decision on his future after being linked with the Chelsea job, according to reports.

Zidane was one of the names said to be on Todd Boehly’s list of possible candidates to replace Graham Potter after the Englishman was sacked earlier this month. The Frenchman has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid in 2021.

However, the possibility of the 50-year-old being appointed as the next permanent boss at Stamford Bridge has fallen on deaf ears with Mauricio Pochettino now the front-runner after Julian Nagelsmann pulled out of the race.

Zidane won three Champions League and two La Liga titles in four-and-a-half years in Spain, emerging as one of the best managers in football. It was said that he was waiting for the France national team job to become available after the World Cup, but Didier Deschamps’ contract extension left him in limbo.

Now, it has been reported that Zidane has chosen his next venture after nearly two years out of the game. According to French outlet RMC Sport, the former midfielder is keen to return to management in the summer, with a move to Juventus on his list.

Zidane made 212 appearances for the Italian side during his playing days, winning two Serie A titles, the Supercoppa Italiana and reaching two Champions League finals.

The report claims a long-term project is the likely preference for Zidane, with Juventus’ successful appeal against a points deduction for illicit transfer activity making them an attractive prospect. However, Juventus would reportedly have to pay £17.85million to dismiss current boss Massimiliano Allegri – whose contract expires in 2025.
