Manchester United's landing of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has meant that the Frenchman's news of heading to the Old Trafford became subdued of late and Chelsea has been considered a hot destination.
Zidane is keen on making a return to the managerial front after nearly a year of sabbatical and with Chelsea hovering over him, he has placed three demands in front of the Blues if they want him to join, as per reports.
Current Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri faces a monster FA Cup clash with Manchester United this evening, but should the Blues bow out at the fifth round stage of the cup then it could see Sarri's reign at Stamford Bridge come to an abrupt end following a string of poor results.
Zidane has already been rumoured as a possible option to replace Sarri should the Chelsea hierarchy decide to pull the trigger on yet another manager, and a report from The Sun now claims that the ex-Real Madrid boss has several key demands should he be hired.More news: No. 5 Vols win ugly over flailing Commodores

But it is also claimed that Zidane would set three conditions before agreeing to take over at Stamford Bridge.
Current Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is struggling to adapt in England and has been met with heavy criticism after some woeful displays from his side, who sit sixth and 15 points off league leaders Manchester City and Liverpool.
The Metro and SunSport suggest Zidane would be interested in replacing him, but only if he's guaranteed a £200m war-chest, a major say in recruitment, an assurance that Eden Hazard will stay at the club.
