Zinedine Zidane reportedly has one job as his priority to return to management ahead of a potential role as the next manager of Manchester United.
The Frenchman has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid for a second time at the end of last season following a second place finish in La Liga.
As a result, he has become one of European football's most in demand managers, with United joined by PSG in having an interest in appointing him in the future.
However, Zidane has reportedly already chosen his desired next job in management and it is not in club football.
Spanish outlet AS report that Zidane has decided he wants his next role to be as manager of the French national team.
This has put a serious dent in United's hopes to appoint Zidane as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's successor when the Norwegian leaves the club.
France are currently led by Didier Deschamps, who has been at the helm since 2012, having replaced Laurent Blanc following that year's Euros.
Deschamps' contract is currently set to expire following the conclusion of next year's World Cup in Qatar, which France qualified for on Saturday with an 8-0 win over Kazakhstan.
Will Zinedine Zidane manage in the Premier League in the future? Let us know in the comments section below.
In his time as Les Bleus boss, he has guided the team to their second World Cup in 2018 as well as the Nations League title last month.
Deschamps was Zidane's captain as France won their first World Cup on home soil back in 1998.
Zidane's decision to make the France national team job his priority comes as a blow to United as they had hoped he would be the man to succeed Solskjaer.
The club had hoped to use Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane to help convince Zidane to join the club, having previously managed the duo at Real Madrid.
Across his two spells as manager of Los Blancos, Zidane's side won three Champions League titles, two Spanish league titles and two Club World Cups.
