Zinedine Zidane, who had earlier announced his departure from Real Madrid – with whom he won three consecutive league titles – is expected to become the new sports manager of Juventus.

That is according to Spanish outlet Libertad Digital, who claim radio station El Primer Palo will divulge more details of the deal.

The Frenchman should take office in the Italian club from October.

Zidane’s supposed appointment at Juve comes just days after Cristiano Ronaldo signed for the club.

The manager and Ronaldo were part of the Real Madrid side that won a third consecutive Champions League crown in May.

Zinedine Zidane has a huge liability to Juventus, club he has worn the colors between 1996 and 2001. There had played 212 games. Seeing him join the "Old Lady" is not a real surprise, he was quoted, for a time, as potential coach of France.
