The Spain manager is on the run after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was finally fired on Sunday.

Former Real Madrid manager Zidane worked with Ronaldo at the Spanish giants, where they won three consecutive Champions League titles between 2016 and 2018.

But the 36-year-old Ronaldo, who is believed to be highly influential at the club, prefers Enrique over the Frenchman or Ajax manager Erik ten Hag, who are three of the most prominent names in the contest.

Former Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino, now at Paris Saint-Germain, and Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers are believed to be long shots as things stand.

Enrique has led Spain since late 2019 and reached the semi-finals of this summer’s Euro 2020 tournament, before bidding farewell to eventual winners of Italy on penalties.

The 51-year-old managed to win Barcelona two LaLiga titles and a Champions League crown in his three years at the Camp Nou, while Ronaldo faced rivals in Madrid.

United eliminated Solskjaer after an embarrassing performance in a 4-1 beating of promoted Watford, following convincing losses at the hands of rivals Liverpool and Manchester City by a 7-0 aggregate score.
