Five transfers Zinedine Zidane could pull off for Man Utd including Kroos as club 'work to land ex-Real Madrid boss'

ZINEDINE ZIDANE is reportedly in talks to take over as Manchester United boss.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains under mounting pressure in his post at Old Trafford.

And the club are said to be 'working hard' to secure the Frenchman as their new manager.

But after already working with Red Devils stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane, Zidane may try and bring in a few more of his Real Madrid stalwarts.

One of those could be Eden Hazard.

The former Chelsea winger, 30, tore it up in the Premier League for seven years, scoring 85 goals before joining Los Blancos.

But he has struggled for form at Real and could be allowed to leave – with United among the sides already linked.

However, Zidane could face competition from the likes of his old Blues employers and mega-rich Newcastle for the Belgian's signature.


Another target might be 31-year-old Toni Kroos, more than seven years after a deal was virtually all done for him to head to Old Trafford under David Moyes.

But with Moyes sacked in April 2014, the German midfielder headed to Madrid from Bayern Munich instead that summer.

Karim Benzema could be another player Zidane tries to lure to the north west should he take over at the Theatre of Dreams.

The French striker, 33, continues to bang in the goals for Los Blancos and is now back in the international fold again, too.

With Kylian Mbappe expected to take over as the new No9 from next season, Edinson Cavani on course to leave and Cristiano Ronaldo not playing every minute, Benzema could find himself wanted at United.

As well as competing with Ronaldo for a starting spot, the pair may be able to rekindle their relationship on the field to deliver similar success for Zidane in Manchester.

Dani Carvajal was a firm favourite under Zidane during both spells in the Bernabeu dugout – and could provide an upgrade on struggling Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Still only 29, with bags of experience and a full trophy cabinet including four Champions Leagues, the Spaniard would be a fine addition.

Lastly, with United's defence still terribly shaky, Eder Militao could also be brought in.

The 23-year-old Brazil centre-back joined Los Blancos in 2019 on a six-year deal from Porto – but is also being linked with a transfer to Chelsea.

According to El Nacional, the Blues submitted a £34million bid for Militao, who has been a mainstay in the Real team under Carlo Ancelotti this term following Varane's and Sergio Ramos' departures.
