American teenager Will Vint has left Manchester United because of visa issues, sources have told ESPN FC.

Now, according to French newspaper L'Equipe, Zidane has set his sights on a Premier League post and is especially keen on United.

Intriguingly, Zidane now allegedly wants to replace Mourinho at Old Trafford, which is fascinating because it was Mourinho who first brought Zidane into the Real Madrid backroom setup back in 2010, and somewhat emulates how Mourinho replaced his former mentor in Louis van Gaal.

Metro reports that Mourinho took the opportunity to praise the 23-year-old after the match, holding a private talk with Shaw after addressing the rest of his players.

Zidane, 46, turned his hand to coaching in 2014 with Real Madrid's Castilla side, and was promoted in January 2016 following Rafael Benitez's exit.

The former Chelsea boss, however, has been at odds with United's hierarchy this summer, primarily over their refusal to sign an experienced central defender before the transfer window closed last Thursday.

During pre-season, Mourinho lamented the lack to acquire priority targets which seemingly aroused tension between him and club Chief Executive Ed Woodward.

The Portuguese manager had warned United's board that the club face a "difficult season" if the squad was not improved.

Mourinho is still under contract at Manchester United and will continue as manager for the foreseeable future.

He has previously played for Real Colorado as part of the USA soccer development academy and was earmarked for a place in United's U18s squad this season after impressing on trial last season.

Do you think United would be a good fit for Zidane should Mourinho get sacked?
