Zinedine Zidane has been out of work since the end of the season after leaving Real Madrid, just days after winning his third consecutive Champions League, but it’s now being reported that the 46-year-old will re-join Italian champions Juventus in a very different role.
He will arrive at the club in October this year, according to journalist Juanma Rodríguez, who reports that according to sources very close to the Agnelli family, Zidane will join as an advisor to the sports management.
Spanish outlet Libertad Digital believe that Zidane will join the technical staff at the Serie A club, working alongside Fabio Paratici, who is the current sporting director.
In recent days, there had been talks of a possible appearance from Zidane at Cristiano Ronaldo recent presentation as a Juventus player, but clearly they didn’t materialise.
Journalist Juanma Rodríguez will give more information on the deal on his radio show this evening as the rumour continues to swirl. There has certainly been plenty of talk surrounding the potential deal on social media.
