Manchester United rule out move for former Real Madrid boss

Jose Mourinho news

Manchester United have ruled out a move for former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, according to the BBC.

The France legend has been linked with a move to United should Jose Mourinho be sacked.

A club source revealed to the BBC that there is no vacancy at Old Trafford. The source said: "Why would we discuss Zidane when there is no job?"

Mourinho's side lost 3-2 to Brighton and Hove Albion over the weekend, and the former Chelsea boss has been named as the first manager to likely lose his job this season.

Mourinho is into his third season at Old Trafford, and has won the League Cup and the Europa League since his arrival.

After going trophyless last season, and failing to start the season on a perfect note, United will have to pick up a series of good wins to justify the amount of money spent and quiet the talk of Jose being sacked.

United will hope to begin their revival when they face Tottenham Hotspur next Monday.
