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.
The West London outfit under manager Maurizio Sarri suffered their third humiliating defeat in five games which is known to be unacceptable to the club owner as speculations grow that the Italian boss could be called out of the Stamford Bridge.
The French legend is keen to talk seriously about taking over as boss and turn the Blues into contenders again at home and overseas with a £200m transfer kitty.
But according to The Sun, the 46-year-old is keen on the Chelsea job if it were available as long as the board are prepared to match his terms.

The former Real Madrid player and manager has had a highly successful managerial career with the Spanish giants which saw him win numerous accolades, most prestigiously three consecutive UEFA Champions Leagues.
Chelsea's purse strings can certainly accommodate Zidane's requests and Sarri's departure could be imminent should the Blues lose to United this evening and also fall to Manchester City in Sunday's Carabao Cup final.
Zidane also wants to play a major role in Chelsea's transfer process and have a bigger say on which players are brought in.
Time will tell on whether Zidane will replace Sarri, who has until the end of the season to turn things around and push Chelsea into a Champions League place.
