Not much has been heard from the French World Cup victor since then although there were whispers that he was placed on a shortlist by Manchester United management as a backup should Mourinho decide to depart Old Trafford.
The Red Devils style of play under Mourinho has received some heavy criticism despite the fact that the club won three trophies in the Portuguese's first season in charge and finished second in the Premier League last season.
The Sun reported in July that Zidane was top of United's shortlist should Mourinho leave the club.
Three-time UEFA Champions League-winning manager Zinedine Zidane has reportedly set his sights on managing in the Premier League, and has a certain club in mind.
The same article states that Manchester United believe the summer signing will take a full part in the training session but the suggestion is that Dalot will require a couple of weeks to get up to speed.
The United boss has been in the media for all the wrong reasons throughout the summer, complaining about transfers, players, and his relationship with United's executive vice-president, Ed Woodward.
United have failed to win the Premier League title since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs was also among the list, while Antonio Conte, Luis Enrique and Brendan Rodgers, of all people, are also linked.
And Mourinho also disagreed with Woodward over the future of Anthony Martial, with the United manager happy for the French forward to be sold.
