Manchester United look to have made one significant step towards the transfer of £135million-rated attacking midfielder Marco Asensio.
The Real Madrid star has struggled for playing time at the Bernabeu this season, looking less consistent and assured of his place in the team under both Julen Lopetegui and his successor Santiago Solari.
According to Don Balon, Asensio misses Zinedine Zidane, who has of course been strongly linked as a leading candidate for the Manchester United job for some time
It now seems likely the Spain international would look to follow Zidane to wherever he goes next, and it seems that a switch to Old Trafford is looking closer than ever.
Jose Mourinho is not Mr Popular at United right again as results of bad performance and 3-1 lost against their bitter rival Liverpool FC.
The Portuguese has been relieved of his duty as Manchester united manager earlier today announced via Manchester united official website.
Now that everything has fall into place, Manchester united are looking at a Zidane-led United with Asensio as one of his star players by the time January is over.
