  • EPL Manchester United Overcome Leicester City In Season Opener

As per one of the latest reports by The Guardian, Manchester United are set to appoint a Director of Football for the first time, once the club completes its restructuring and expansion process.

Not much has been heard from the French World Cup victor since then although there were whispers that he was placed on a shortlist by Manchester United management as a backup should Mourinho decide to depart Old Trafford.

Mourinho's relationship with Shaw has been called into question on a number of occasions in the past, with the Portuguese boss publicly criticising the full-back on numerous occasions.

Three-time UEFA Champions League-winning manager Zinedine Zidane has reportedly set his sights on managing in the Premier League, and has a certain club in mind.

Zidane was heading the Whites from 2016 to 2018, and won nine titles with the Real Madrid.

In just two-and-a-half-years, the Frenchman guided Real to a hat-trick of Champions League crowns and a La Liga title before leaving for pastures new.

DONE DEAL? Chelsea midfielder Bakayoko signs AC Milan contract
While the Rossoneri are yet to announce the deal, Gazzetta dello Sport says Bakayoko signed a Milan contract yesterday afternoon. The France worldwide joins Milan on a 12-month loan with the option to sign permanently for a mooted fee of €40m.

The Brazilian worldwide was brought into the club this season by Jose Mourinho and ultimately proved to be the only major signing of summer.

The Sun reported in July that Zidane was top of United's shortlist should Mourinho leave the club.

The opportunity to come in and manage a club such as Manchester United back to former glories is one which appeals to Zidane.

Since the shock resignment at Real, Zidane has been linked with the Qatar national team job and a technical advisory role with former club Juventus in before the speculation was quickly dismissed.

Manchester United were 2-1 winners against Leicester City in their Premier League opener on Friday night.
