The Telegraph claims Manchester United board are already planning for a future without Jose Mourinho as talks have already begun to bring Zinedine Zidane to manage the club.

United are yet to find the perfect manager since the days of Sir Alex Ferguson, when the club would regularly compete for the Premier League titles.

David Moyes and Louis van Gaal have both paid the price for failure, with Woodward axing them in 2014 and 2016 respectively.

United are behind on 10 points, with defeats to Tottenham, Brighton and West Ham piling on the misery.

The report further say Woodward will act if results continue to spiral and they fall even further behind their rivals.

Meanwhile, France international Paul Pogba has reportedly threatened to force his way out of Manchester United in January if Jose Mourinho remains the manager at the club.

The 25-year-old’s relationship with his Red Devils manager has been in shambles few months after winning the Europa League in 2017.

Recently, both were also involved in a bust up during one of their training sessions last week after crashing out of the EFL Cup.

He removed him in the second half of the Red Devils’ 3-1 defeat at West Ham on Saturday as they slipped to the tenth position on the EPL table.

Pogba feels he is being embarrassed by being played in formations and with tactics that none of the team can get a grip of.
