Maurizio Sarri could be sacked before City clash on Sunday as Chelsea are prepared to welcome the arrival of former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, according to the guardian.

Zidane, who won three Champions League titles in a row while at Madrid, would be interested in attempting to turn the Blues back into contenders at home and abroad if the club can match his own ambition.

The Frenchman has reportedly laid out the terms he would need in place in order to take the Chelsea job.

Zidane would need the Blues to guarantee that star man Eden Hazard, would not be sold.

He would also need a transfer kitty in the region of £200m to improve the squad and to have a major say in players’ recruitment.

The 46-year-old has been out of job, since he walked away from Madrid last year, after winning a third consecutive Champions League title.
