Zinédine Zidane has been without a club since leaving Real Madrid voluntarily last summer. The French were approached by an English club.
Zizou is free and available in the market, but Zizou is not ready to accept any plan. The former Real Madrid coach continues to live in Madrid and take it easy after a tough year at the Spanish club. He was also on the stand when Merengus returned to the Bernabeu. So, Double Z is in no hurry to find a new challenge, although he was recently approached by a club, not any other club.
According to British newspapers relayed by RMC Sport, Zinedine Zidane contacted Newcastle to develop this highly ambitious new project. The English club was recently acquired by a Saudi investment fund and wants to bring a big name to coaching and building this new club-state structure with enormous financial resources.
However, the former Real Madrid coach would have quickly rejected the proposal, saying he would only lead the French team according to RMC Sport details. If this information turns out to be correct, we should not see Zidane reactivate before the 2022 World Cup (at least) as Tito Deshchamps was strengthened by his federations and his recent victory in the Nations League.
