Man United has finally decided on a permanent replacement for Solskjaer.
After the Red Devils were thrashed 4-1 by Watford on Saturday night, the board opted to sack Solskjaer in an emergency meeting.
United are currently in seventh place in the Premier League after 11 games, having won only one of their last seven league games under Solskjaer.
After a dismal start to the Premier League season, Solskjaer has lost the trust of his teammates.
After the club was hammered by Leicester City, Manchester City, and Liverpool, the United board decided against sacking the 48-year-old, allowing him more time largely due to a lack of acceptable candidates.
With the Frenchman out of work since leaving Real Madrid, the club's administration has picked Zidane as the best possible alternative.
The 49-year-old had planned to retire for at least a year, and his family is concerned that he will return to management so soon.
The publication claims, however, that United's board of directors will now speed up talks with the Frenchman.
