Zinedine Zidane left his post as the manager of Real Madrid earlier this summer. He wants to move away from club management and takeover from Didier Deschamps as the manager of the French national team.

According to reports, the former Real Madrid manager is prepared to wait until the 2024 European Championships to take over from Deschamps.

There were speculations that Deschamps could be on his way out of the national team set up after France’s shocking exit against Switzerland in the Euros earlier this summer. Still, French FA president Noel Le Graet has confirmed that the manager will continue in his role for the foreseeable future.

Deschamps has a contract with France until December 2022, but there could be an extension until the summer of 2024.

The former French international player has led his country to World Cup success in 2018, and he will be hoping to replicate the feat once again next year.

Meanwhile, Zinedine Zidane remains the frontrunner to replace Deschamps if he is relieved of his duties in the near future.

Zidane has already rejected offers from multiple clubs, and he is waiting for the France job. He was linked with the Juventus job a few weeks ago. 

The former Real Madrid manager has had an exceptional tenure at the Spanish club, and he managed to win every trophy at the club level with Los Blancos. There is no doubt that he is more than qualified to manage his country in the near future.
