According to L'equipe, Zidane, who has lifted the Champions League with Real Madrid over three consecutive years, is already eyeing a return to management in the English Premier League with Manchester United.

Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane is reportedly keen on succeeding Jose Mourinho as the manager of Manchester United.

United finished 19 points behind runaway winners Manchester City last term and Mourinho has been unapologetic in voicing his dissatisfaction with the lack of sufficient reinforcements this summer.

Shaw joined United from his boyhood club after representing England at the 2014 World Cup for a reported £32 million. Should The Red Devils underperform this season it might not be long until Zidane takes over at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese manager had warned United's board that the club face a "difficult season" if the squad was not improved.

However, the former Southampton defender, despite several instances of public criticism from manager Jose Mourinho, has remained with the club and started in their league opener against the Foxes.

Shaw has claimed that Pogba "does not need a break", and is hopeful of "sharing some good memories" with the 25-year-old this season.

Pogba also went on to open up about his mental state, as he was quoted as saying (via BBC): "If you're not happy, you can not give your best".

After starting the Premier League season with a victory over Leicester City, United are back in action on Sunday, August 20 against Brighton at the The American Express Community Stadium.

Pogba confirmed his unhappiness at the club by telling reporters after the game that "There are things I can say and there are things that I cannot say, otherwise I will get fined".

But the bad blood is hanging over from last season when the pair fell out leading to Mourinho dropping and subbing the player.
