PSG have started negotiations with Zinédine Zidane to succeed Mauricio Pochettino

Yes, Zinédine Zidane is the choice of PSG to replace Mauricio Pochettino. If AS affirmed Wednesday that the French coach would have refused to arrive during the season, Le Parisien affirms this Thursday that the negotiations between ZZ and the Ile-de-France club have started well. Better, the newspaper confirms a meeting during the second week of the holidays of Toussaint at the Royal Monceau between the former Madrid coach and Leonardo accompanied by Jean-Claude Blanc (general manager of PSG) to discuss the contours of a possible arrival.

« Things are moving forward« , even affirms the daily, which confirms the interest of ZZ to occupy the function of coach of the PSG. But the timing remains the main question: until now, a possible arrival was discussed for the summer of 2022. But the current situation, in Manchester United where Mauricio Pochettino is expected, could speed up the timing.

The Blues always in the back of their minds

It was as soon as he left Real after another grueling season that PSG tried to make contact with Zidane. Tired by his last season and rather with a view to waiting for a possible place at the head of the Blues after the 2022 World Cup, the French had pushed back the Parisian advances. Before finally agreeing to discuss a few weeks later.

Another argument put forward by the Parisian: the possibility of convincing Kylian Mbappé to extend with the idea of ​​working with the legend Zidane. A convoluted scenario but which has the merit of existing. It remains to be seen whether the timetable will accelerate. The performance of PSG at the Etihad Stadium is in any case not likely to reassure the Qatari owners, very attached to the image released by the Parisian club. And the fate of Mauricio Pochettino could well still occupy the discussions …
