Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane meets with Manchester United ambassador Mikael Silvestre amid reports linking him with the Old Trafford post.

Zinedine Zidane has met with Manchester United ambassador Mikael Silvestre amid reports linking him with the manager's job at Old Trafford.

United are searching for a permanent successor to Jose Mourinho, who was sacked earlier this month and initially replaced with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer until the end of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is understood to be one of United's main targets for the role, but former Real Madrid manager Zidane is also thought to be on their radar.

Zidane has been out of work since leaving Madrid at the end of last season, having steered the club to three successive Champions League titles.

Speculation linking the Frenchman with the role is now set to increase after he met up with United club ambassador Silvestre in Dubai.

Zidane and Silvestre were international teammates with France during their playing days.
