Zidane is ready to lead Chelsea
Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is open to work with Chelsea, but has a number of requirements.
In recent weeks, Maurizio Sarri has given a lot of reasons for the Blues’ management to think about changing the club’s head coach. Zidane, who has been out of work since the end of last season, was called a favorite for the place of the Italian specialist.
According to The Sun, Zidane is ready to accept Chelsea from Sarri’s hands at the end of this season or next summer, but the London club must satisfy three of his requests.
First, Zidane wants to sign a new contract with playmaker Eden Hazard, no matter how much it will cost. Secondly, Zinedine will require £200 million to strengthen the squad.
Thirdly, Zidane wants to have his own word in the issues of the staff composition, line-ups and contracts extension, which is what Marina Granovskaia deals with right now.
