Zinedine Zidane To Follow Cristiano Ronaldo To Juventus?
After Real Madrid lost both Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane in the same transfer window, new reports suggest that the Frenchman, as well as one of his sons, could sensationally follow his former player to Juventus.
Zidane stepped down as Los Blancos boss after winning nine trophies – including three successive UEFA Champions League titles – in just two and a half years at the Santiago Bernabeu.
It is widely believed the 46-year-old wants to take a sabbatical from football after months of media pressure and speculation around his position following Real's relatively poor LaLiga campaign.
Libertad Digital has now claimed that Zidane could follow Ronaldo to Juventus to become a technical adviser for the Italian giants.
Zidane, who played for the Bianconeri between 1996 and 2001, had a similar role at Real before going into coaching. It is believed he could start in October, and would function as a link between the club's directors and the squad.
His son Luca, Real's third-choice goalkeeper, could also reportedly join him in Italy, after the Spanish giants signed Ukranian shot-stopper Andriy Lunin last month.
However, Spanish publication AS have stated that Juventus spokesperson has dismissed the rumours around Zinedine Zidane and his son Luca, insisting that the club already have former player Pavel Nedved in the consultancy role reportedly offered to the Frenchman.
