Chelsea are keeping an eye on Zinedine Zidane after he announced his exit from Real Madrid on Thursday, claims Daily Mail.
Chelsea are looking to replace boss Antonio Conte before the new season. Former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri remains favourite to be Chelsea’s new boss but Napoli’s insistence on getting £8 million as release clause is stalling his appointment.
The Blues are now considering other options and with Zidane announcing his exit on Thursday, Chelsea have reportedly added him to the managerial shortlist.
Zidane announced on Thursday that he wasn’t going to coach another team immediately but Daily Mail claim Chelsea would try to persuade Zidane to change his mind.
