While his name is mentioned with insistence on the side of PSG, Zinedine Zidane could all the more easily join the club of the capital that he would not be among the priorities of Real Madrid or Juventus Turin.
Zinedine Zidane does not hide it. Forced to give up on the French team due to the extension of Didier Deschamps, the Marseille technician now hopes to quickly resume service. “Today, I have time and I don’t know how long it will last. I currently have time, maybe until June but it can also go very quickly“, he thus confided during one of his last speeches, at the beginning of February.
And once again, the list of clubs likely to attract him is, to say the least, reduced. For many observers, it is reduced to PSG, Real Madrid and Juventus Turin. In Paris, the departure of Christophe Galtier indeed seems certain and the former playmaker still appears to be the priority objective of the Qatari leaders, who would have given themselves until the end of May to convince the 98 world champion to join the club. of the capital.
Not a priority for Real Madrid
The deal would be different at Real Madrid and Juventus Turin. Seen from Spain, Zizou would have made the merengue club his priority. But the Madrid leaders would have other plans in mind in the event of the – probable – departure of Carlo Ancelotti. And this despite the signing of Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich. The German coach is indeed highly appreciated by Florentino Perez. But in the absence of the former PSG coach, the Spanish champions would have targeted another ex-Parisian, Mauricio Pochettino, as well as a former Madrid icon, Raul. Two men that the boss of Real also holds in very high esteem.
At Juventus Turin, an arrival of Zinedine Zidane seems even more improbable. Because a departure from Massimiliano Allegri is not on the agenda. Despite the 15 penalty points received at the start of the season, Juventus returned to contact with European places and qualified for the quarter-finals of the Europa League. And his XXL contract does not plead in favor of a dismissal of the Italian technician either. To believe Tuttosport, if the latter wanted to leave, the Bianconeri would also like to turn more to Igor Tudor than to Zinedine Zidane. An additional boon for PSG.
