Paris SG is making great strides on the file of Mauricio Pochettino’s successor. Under contract until June 2023, the Argentinian is no longer wanted by his management, who have been looking for a replacement for him for several days. The names rain down, from Marcelo Gallardo to Joachim Löw via Ruben Amorim and Sérgio Conceição. And while Christophe Galtier, currently at OGC Nice, seemed to be holding the line, new information is reviving the case this Friday morning.
Mundo Deportivo thus ensures that it is ultimately Zinedine Zidane who should take his place on the bench of the capital club. The agreement could even be sealed this weekend according to the words of the Spanish sports daily. The tricolor technician, priority of the Parisian staff for several months as we revealed to you, is expected in Doha in the next few hours to complete the operation definitively.
RMC Sports confirms that an agreement is close whileEuropean 1 goes further, ensuring the existence of an agreement in principle between the two parties. If we are able to confirm that there has indeed been a serious rapprochement between the two parties, in permanent contact for a very long time, nothing is yet definitive, talks still existing in parallel with Galtier. There are still several points to be settled, but optimism seems to be warranted as to a positive outcome on this file.
Free since his departure from Real Madrid in the summer of 2021, the former playmaker of the Blues, who seemed to be patiently waiting for the end of Didier Deschamps’ mandate at the head of the France team, could therefore finally choose to dive back into the daily life of a club. After Kylian Mbappé’s extension until June 2025, PSG would strike a second huge blow on the transfer market by luring Zinedine Zidane to their bench.
