Pressure is building on Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford

Zinedine Zidane has emerged as favourite for United job

Zinedine Zidane is 3-1 favourite to be next Red Devils boss
1 of 1

Jose Mourinho has been extremely well backed to be the first Premier League manager to leave his post and his problems could present an opportunity for Zinedine Zidane, who has emerged as the favourite in Hills's next Manchester United manager market.

Poor pre-season performances and a lack of transfer activity have irked Mourinho, who has shortened from 20-1 to 7-1 to be the next managerial casualty.

The pressure appears to be building on the Portuguese boss and United have reportedly included Zidane among the list of names they would consider to replace him.

Zidane is just 3-1 with Hills to be the next Red Devils boss while Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino is a 5-1 shot.

However Mourinho isn't the only top-flight manager under pressure.

Coral and Ladbrokes have trimmed Leicester's Claude Puel from 8-1 to 7-1 in their next manager to go betting while Watford's Javi Gracia has been cut from 8-1 to 7-1 with Sky Bet.

Hills are betting on whether or not Mourinho sees out a third full season at Old Trafford, offering 1-2 that he does and 6-4 he doesn't.

Mourinho did get some respite as goal from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera helped United register a 2-1 success over Real Madrid in Miami.

And his selections problems may be about to ease after Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford and Phil Jones volunteered to return to training three days earlier than had previously been arranged.

Chelsea are reportedly ready to offer N'Golo Kante a massive new contract but that hasn't stopped speculation over the player securing a possible move to Paris St-Germain.

Ladbrokes offer 3-1 that Kante joins PSG this summer and 2-1 that Blues teammate Eden Hazard signs for Real Madrid.
