Zinedine Zidane has hinted that he is set to return to management soon.

The former France star resigned from his position as Real Madrid manager after leading Los Blancos to a third successive Champions League crown at the end of May.

But he told Spanish broadcaster TVE that he plans to be back in the game shortly.

Zidane said: “Yes, surely. Soon I will return to training because it is what I like and is what I have done all my life.”

The 46-year-old is the favourite to replace Jose Mourinho if he is sacked by Manchester United later this season.

Real Madrid could lose out on the services of Vinicius Junior if he does not see more first team action before the end of 2018, reports Marca.

The 18-year-old has been frustrated to have been relegated to Madrid’s B team, where he scored two goals against Atletico Madrid B last week, and is considering returning to his homeland in search of more game time.

The former Flamengo frontman had an agreement where if he came over this summer, he could return to Brazil for the spring if he was not happy at the Bernabeu.

If a return to his native Rio de Janeiro was to happen, it guarantees Vinicius regular football at Flamengo before coming back to Madrid for pre-season next summer.

For manager Julen Lopetegui, his number one priority is the first team and winning as many game as possible, but the club is also looking at ways to keep Vinicius and other peripheral players happy.

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez admits it’s been difficult to watch Real Madrid dominate the Champions League over the past few years and insists captain Lionel Messi is determined to win the competition again.

Los Blancos have clinched the last three Champions League titles, and four since 2014, while Barcelona’s most recent triumph was in 2015.

The Uruguayan revealed that his teammate Messi is more motivated than ever to help the Catalan giants get back to the pinnacle of Europe, as he aims to add a fifth Champions League winners’ medal to his mantlepiece.

“He’s really motivated, even more so after the World Cup and the Champions League,” Suarez told RAC1.

“Now he’s the captain, the leader and he wants to lift trophies. We have a quality team and a coach to be able to win everything.

“But it’s a really difficult competition to win and [Messi] can’t win it on his own. It has to be a collective effort, as good as he is. We have to be compact. Leo deserves more.

“Obviously it’s infuriating [for us] because Madrid have won the Champions League in each of the last three years. They have made history and it’s a thorn in our side.
