Mourinho is under huge pressure after a nightmare week at Old Trafford.

The Man United boss was caught having a row with star player Paul Pogba on the training ground just days after stripping him of the club’s vice-captaincy.

While a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves last weekend was followed by a Carabao Cup exit on penalties to Championship side Derby and a miserable 3-1 loss at West Ham  yesterday.

The result has left the Manchester giants floundering in mid-table, well off the pace set by joint-leaders Manchester City and Liverpool.

And TalkSPORT pundit Tony Cascarino claims moves are already been made to source Mourinho’s replacement, with out-of-work ex-Real Madrid boss Zidane in the frame.

Speaking on the Weekend Breakfast show, he said: “I think he’ll be gone very soon, I think the talks have already happened.

“I was led to believe that Zidane has already met United from a source who has told me many things over the years from France that have come true.

“I think that will happen and should happen now.

“United are 10th in the league. They are below Bournemouth.

“I know there are only seven games gone, but United have served up tripe, as in the sort of football we’ve witnessed.

“I went there twice in my career, got beat 4-0 and 5-1.

“They took it to you. You needed a tin hat to go to Old Trafford.

“They’d match you in every way: technically, physically, they’d come for you from every angle.

“I don’t see that from a Manchester United team now.

“Yes, he’s won two trophies.

“But I see the game moving on and evolving where Mourinho is going further and further behind.”
