Man Utd to sign Zidane?

Enzo Zidane that is!  See what I did there?


Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Enzo Zidane, the 16 year old son of legendary former French international Zinedine Zidane. Gazzetta dello Sport believes that the Old Trafford side are keen on the young midfielder as are Italian giants Juventus.
Currently at Real Madrid the young attacking midfielder is said to be set to sign for Belgian side Standard Liege on loan but interest shown by Sir Alex Ferguson may put a halt to such a move. Enzo Zidane is also currently in something of a tug of war between France and Spain, both of whom are keen for the teenager to represent them at international level. (CaughtOffside.com)
Zinedine Zidane is without doubt the best player I have ever seen and probably the best player the world has ever had so I'm sure his 16 year old son feels no pressure living up to his name at all.  When I used to play football at the park with my Dad he would just kick it as hard as he could in the air - it was a hoot - but imagine now that your Dad is Zinedine Zidane.  To make it even harder you know that if you accidentally shout something not especially nice about your sister, your Dad is going to come and head-butt you, because if he does it during the most widely watched sporting event in the world he sure as hell isn't going to care what happens behind closed doors.  At this point I'd like to clarify that I don't think that Zidane assaults his children.
