After Cristiano Ronaldo’s shock move from Real Madrid to Juventus, it seems his former coach Zinedine Zidane is set to join him in Italy.
Zinedine Zidane has agreed to join the technical staff at Juventus after quitting his role as Real Madrid manager weeks ago.
According to reports, Zidane will work alongside Fabio Paratici as a director at the Serie A side.
Sources close to the Agnelli family reportedly confirmed that Zidane could start his new role in October.
The supposed appointment comes just days after Ronaldo completed a £99 million switch to the Italian giants.
Zidane was expected to make an appearance at the Portuguese star’s official unveiling on Monday, but he did not turn up.
The manager and Ronaldo were part of the Real Madrid side that won a third consecutive Champions League crown in May.
The Frenchman would be returning to the Serie A club 17 years after he left as a player, in a then world record €77.5m move to Real Madrid.
During his time with Madrid, Zidane became the first manager to win the Champions League three times in a row.
But the tactical genius, who was replaced by Julen Lopetegui in Spain, has been out of work since May.
He has since been linked to numerous managerial roles including the France national team, but none of them have materialised.
Zidane spent five seasons as a player for Juventus before he completed a move to Real Madrid in 2001.
