CaughtOffside have been told of some contact already taking place between Zinedine Zidane and United players as he anticipates getting an offer to replace the struggling Mourinho soon.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail have also claimed that the Portuguese tactician could be sacked if United lose to Burnley, which would make it three defeats in a row after losses to Brighton and Tottenham.

Still, it seems Mourinho is doing all he can to ensure his side get back on track, with the Metro reporting that he made a scouting trip to watch Burnley in action against Olympiacos in the Europa League.

Sean Dyche’s side are certainly no pushovers, so Mourinho will need to have something up his sleeve for this next clash if United are to avoid another big disappointment.
