Zidane to Chicago?

I told you exclusively here at the Insider earlier this week that talks between the Chicago Fire and French megastar Zinedine Zidane have started up again, and today a reliable source tells me that a decision could be made by Monday. Zidane is interested in restarting his tarnished career, but he wants to do it somewhere far from the European hysteria. Chicago and New York expressed interest earlier this winter, but negotiations stalled. Obviously, a Zidane signing would command a monster contract, and Anschutz Entertainment Group, which operates the Fire, is in position to provide it. They've already lured Beckham to L.A. and are drooling at the opportunity to reel in Zidane.
