Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane in-line for sensational return to Juventus

Zinedine Zidane could be set to follow his former Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, and return to Juventus for the first time in 17 years.

Zidane surprisingly departed the Bernabeu before the 2018 World Cup, with Julen Lopetegui heading over in the other direction.

The Frenchman was subsequently linked with a move into the international arena with France, however a switch now looks unlikely after Didier Deschamps led Les Bleus to World Cup glory in Russia, as he became only the third man to lift the trophy as both a player and a manager.

Zidane is now believed to be on the cusp of venturing back to Turin for the first time since 2001, in a role as sporting director, where he would work alongside Fabio Paratici, according to Libertad Digital.

However, AS.com has rubbished the reports as the club already have Pavel Nedved in a similar position.

During his playing days Zidane spent five seasons at Juventus where he won two Serie A titles and the 1998 Ballon d’Or, before leaving for Real Madrid for E77.5m.

Zidane would later began his senior managerial career with Los Blancos in 2016 and went on to win three consecutive Champions League titles, La Liga, plus five other domestic, European and Worldwide honours.

Juventus are currently priced at 7/1 to win the Champions League next season, a trophy which they last lifted back in 1996.
