Old Trafford side keen on Zinedine Zidane’s son.
Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Enzo Zidane, the 16 year old son of legendary former French international Zinedine Zidane. Gazzetta dello Sport believes that the Old Trafford side are keen on the young midfielder as are Italian giants Juventus.
Currently at Real Madrid the young attacking midfielder is said to be set to sign for Belgian side Standard Liege on loan but interest shown by Sir Alex Ferguson may put a halt to such a move. Enzo Zidane is also currently in something of a tug of war between France and Spain, both of whom are keen for the teenager to represent them at international level.
The Italian source also states that Zidane senior may feel that his son’s career aspirations could be better served at Man United although interest from Zinedine’s former Turin employers may also be acted upon.
Enzo is said to be a star of the future with talent that should help make the youngster stand out without the aid of his famous footballing parentage. That said, he is apparently most adept in a similar advanced midfield role to that adopted by Zinedine Zidane.
