Where next for Zidane? Italy frontrunner despite Bayern links

While speculation surrounding Zinedine Zidane’s next coaching destination has been dominated by links with Bayern Munich, the allure of Italy remains strong for the French legend.

Out of a club since leaving Real Madrid in 2021, Zidane’s name has been linked with various European teams in recent months. With the French national team out of the picture, Zidane has no interest in heading another national side. Apart from PSG, Marseille, and Manchester United, Bayern Munich has been heavily linked with the 1998 World Cup winner in recent times. However, Zidane’s limited English and German language skills could pose a significant challenge to his prospects of joining these clubs.

Italy Beckons?

According to L’Équipe, Zidane’s options for a grand project that aligns with his ambitions are limited. While Xavi’s departure from Barcelona opens up a vacancy, it’s highly unlikely that Zidane would succeed his former teammate at the helm. However, Italy presents a potential return for the Frenchman.

Massimiliano Allegri is expected to leave Juventus Turin after a disappointing season, but Zidane may not be the ideal replacement. The Bianconeri are reportedly favoring former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta for the job.

AC Milan, on the other hand, could be an attractive destination for Zidane. The Rossoneri have just witnessed their arch-rivals Inter Milan lift the Scudetto, and Stefano Pioli is reportedly on his way out, with a year left on his contract. Zidane, who is fluent in Italian, could make a sensational return to Serie A.

Zidane’s coaching future remains uncertain, but the Italian allure continues to hold strong despite the persistent Bayern Munich links. The football world will be watching closely to see where the legendary Frenchman decides to make his next move.
