Chelsea want Zidane as next manager to replace Sarri and take Blues back to the very top

CHELSEA are ready to turn to Zinedine Zidane to make them a European superpower again.

Current manager Maurizio Sarri is running out of backers after the 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City as the Blues dropped to sixth in the Premier League.

There is growing support amongst the top brass for Zidane and talks have advanced this week over when they should make their move.

Zidane’s incredible Champions League credentials, winning it three times in three years as manager of Real Madrid, are a huge draw for the Blues board.

The 46-year-old is currently not in management and is understood to be very keen on a job in the Premier League.

Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard — linked with a move away from the club with his contract up in 2020 — idolises Zidane.

A move for the legendary French player, who won the World Cup with Les Bleus, would be encouragement for Hazard to sign a new deal.

Sarri was unbeaten in his first 12 games in charge at Stamford Bridge, having succeeded sacked Antonio Conte last summer.

He has taken Chelsea to a Carabao Cup final against Manchester City later this month but the Blues hierarchy are more interested in Champions League qualification.
