ZINEDINE ZIDANE is being lined up as the new Qatar national team manager and would be paid an eye-watering £44million per year, according to reports.
Zidane, 45, announced his shock resignation from Real Madrid yesterday but may not be out of work for too long.
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.
