Qatar national team reportedly set to appoint Zinedine Zidane as the manager and would be paid an eye-watering £44million per year according to Egyptian influential billionaire.
The Frenchman announced on Thursday he was stepping down as Real Madrid manager but he may not be out of work for too long.
Zizou was widely expected to take a sabbatical, much like Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique have done, but an offer of £120,000 per day for four years – which would leave him £176m richer by 2022 – may be too good to turn down.
That is the figure reported by influential Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris, who took to Twitter to suggest the offer on the table.
Qatar will host the World Cup in 2022 and therefore receive automatic qualification. It will be the first time the nation – ranked 101st in the world – have appeared at the tournament and not since 1934 have the host nation been making their tournament debut.
