Chelsea have reportedly made Zidane their No.1 target should the club lose patience with Maurizio Sarri.
Zidane, who won three Champions League titles in a row while Real Madrid manager, would be interested in attempting to turn the Blues back into contenders at home
and abroad if the club can match his own ambition.
Current Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has come under pressure following a run of three defeats in seven games that
included 4-0 and 6-0 away losses to Bournemouth and Manchester City respectively.

But for Zidane to succeed Sarri, he would need his wishes to be met.
According to reports, the French legend would first want Chelsea to sort out a new contract for Eden Hazard.
Zidane made no secret of his admiration of the Belgian playmaker while Real boss and would be keen to build his side around him at Stamford Bridge.
He would also want a £200million transfer fund to improve the current Chelsea squad.
And finally Zidane would demand a major say in recruitment alongside the club’s director and transfer guru Marina Granovskaia.
Should his terms and ambition be matched by the Chelsea hierarchy then he would reportedly be interested in heading
to the Premier League.
