Zinedine Zidane Clears Air On Juventus Switch Rumor

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has refused to distance himself from a move to Juventus as his contract winds down at Los Blancos.

The Frenchman's contract is up at the end of the season and there has been no movement yet on an extension.  

He has been linked with a switch to the dugout in Turin, where Andrea Pirlo too is under pressure.  

Zidane played for Juventus for five years before making a world-record move to the Bernabeu in 2001.

He didn't hide his love for the club and the country when quizzed on his future as he keeps his options open.  

“Italy is always in my heart and Juventus has always been important to me,” he told reporters.

“Coming back? I don’t know (laughs). I’m here at Real Madrid now. Let’s see.”

A move to the Allianz Stadium could also see him reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo, should the Portuguese star remain at the club.
