Former Real Madrid boss wants Chelsea job and outlines his demands!

The Champions League winner wants a hefty budget as well.

Chelsea are going through tough time. What started as a wonderful season for them is now turning out to be a bad one. Chelsea have only scored once in their last three Premier Leagues. They are yet to register their first away Premier League win in 2019. After their 6-0 humiliating defeat by Manchester City there was an inquest held by Chelsea. With pressure of delivering victories increasing on Sarri, it seems this former Real Madrid boss wants Chelsea job and has given his demands.

Zinedine Zidane has outlined his demands having made it clear he is ready to become Chelsea’s next manager. Zidane only wants Chelsea job if they keep Hazard and give him £200m transfer kitty if they sack Sarri.
The French legend has mapped out his wishlist and will take boss job if Blues can match his ambition. Zidane, the former Real Madrid boss, wants to replace Maurizio Sarri in the Stamford Bridge dugout with the Italian under real pressure following a run of poor results. The pressure will be further ramped up should Chelsea lose to Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round this evening. The French legend is keen to talk seriously about taking over as boss and turn the Blues into contenders again at home and abroad with a £200m transfer kitty.

If he were to succeed under-pressure Maurizio Sarri, Zidane has a three-part wishlist. First a new bumper deal for superstar playmaker Eden Hazard, keeping the Belgian to build a team around. Secondly a £200m to improve the squad. And more if he sells players who are currently at Stamford Bridge but are out of favour. Final demand is a major say in recruitment alongside Blues director Marina Granovskaia. Chelsea’s top brass want Zidane.

It is believed the Italian’s future at Stamford Bridge rests heavily on qualification for next season’s Champions League, with the Blues having to either finish in the Premier League’s top four or win the Europa League to book a place in Europe’s premier cup competition for 2019/20. Sources close to Zizou have told that he is not yet expecting to be given the job. He respects that current chief Sarri is still in control of his own destiny.

He knows if Sarri wins the Carabao Cup — perhaps even the FA Cup — and qualifies for the Champions League in his first season as manager, that  is no mean feat.

Author’s Take:

The two defeats to the Manchester clubs this week could prove a fatal blow for the Italian. However Zidane’s arrival would heavily rely on this season. Chelsea should stick with Sarri instead of appointing Zidane. If Chelsea finish outside top 4 and don’t win Europa League then they won’t cash to spend in summer thanks to FFP rules. If they want budget then they would have to sell Hazard and others.
