But Gunners icon Henry, who has played alongside Zidane for the French national team, doesn’t believe that’s what the World Cup champion is considering.

Speaking on CBS Sports, he said: “Zidane is going to United? I don’t think he will care about that now.

“Why? Because in my head I’m thinking maybe he’s waiting for the national team job.

“I think he has that on his mind.

“So I see it more, although I don’t think Pochettino will leave, but if Pochettino goes then the PSG job will be free for Zidane.”

It has been reported that Zidane has refuse all approaches from Man Utd.

Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino is another name on the team take over at the Theater of Dreams.

But Henry also doubts that will happen as he feels the Argentinian will want to bring success to the Ligue 1 giants.

“I don’t know if they [Man Utd] can get him [Pochettino],” he added.

“When you’re the coach of a team like Paris Saint-Germain, you want to witness it.

“But if you go to Man United you’re almost going to face a different kind of headache trying to figure out how to balance it, because that’s what he’s trying to do right now with Paris Saint-Germain .

“Yes, they are winning, but the game is not going as smoothly as people expect.

“I don’t think he’s going, personally.”

Man Utd have made it clear that they are looking to appoint someone until the end of the season before securing a permanent successor to Solskjaer.
