Chelsea are reportedly looking for a potential replacement for Graham Potter, with former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane being eyed.
Fichajes reports that the Frenchman could be offered a lucrative contract worth around €15m per season to take over Stamford Bridge.
Zidane has proven his managerial pedigree at Real Madrid, winning multiple Champions League trophies and league titles for the Spanish club.
The Blues have been very ambitious in the transfer market so far, signing a number of top-level players. They now need a manager who can lead them to major trophies.
Graham Potter is highly regarded in England but the former Brighton manager has so far failed to make it to Stamford Bridge.It will be interesting to see if Potter can sack Chelsea in the coming months. If results don’t improve soon, Bruce will be forced to look for a replacement, and Zidane would be an exciting addition.
The opportunity to work with a proven winner like him is also inspiring for Chelsea players.
