Speculation over potential Pirlo replacement continues to grow

While Andrea Pirlo continues to struggle as Juventus manager, Zinedine Zidane is one of the managers who has been linked with a move to the club as his replacement.

The French manager was a Bianconeri player and seems destined to handle the former Italian champions at some point in the future.

Juventus have taken a bet on Pirlo, but it doesn’t seem to be paying off at the moment.

The former midfielder could be sacked after this season and the latest development on Zidane’s future could see him move to Turin earlier than expected.

Todofichajes says the Frenchman is seriously considering taking a break after this season as he has been exhausted by the management of Real Madrid in this cycle.

He would consider a sabbatical and he also has an eye on the role of manager within the France team.

Juve has had him in their plans for a long time now and this could be their chance to convince him to join them.

During his short managerial career, Zidane won three Champions Leagues and two La Liga titles among other silverware.

Pirlo should be worried about this development as it looks like he’s struggling to get consistency from his team.

They are plagued by simple mistakes that threaten to spoil their efforts, but they cannot remove them.
