The bench of Paris Saint-Germain could see a big change, since Mauricio Pochettino could want elsewhere and Qatar wants to realize a big dream … with Zinedine Zidane.

Two Spanish Championships, three Champions Leagues, a mess of national and international cups … it's hard to believe that a manager with such a CV doesn't have a club. This is however the case of Zinedine Zidane, who after a second stint at Real Madrid once again decided to take a sabbatical last May. It didn't take long, however, to see his name linked to the biggest clubs in Europe. This was particularly the case for Juventus, a track that we had already spoken about in April 2020 on The English press has also talked a lot about Manchester United in recent months, but after the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjær the leaders of Mancunia have instead turned to an interim of Ralf Rangnick. The hottest track, however, concerns the Paris Saint-Germain ! According to our information, Qatar dreams of attracting Zinedine Zidane and would work hard to convince him to join PSG and therefore replace Mauricio Pochettino.

Qatar prepares the ground for Zidane

A large number of French and foreign media have confirmed what we were able to reveal to you on This is the case of MARCA, who this Saturday spoke at length about a possible arrival of Zinedine Zidane at Paris Saint-Germain. It would indeed have a quality extremely appreciated by Qatari owners and which has often seemed to have been lacking in the various PSG coaches. Former high-level player and close to his executives, Zidane has shown Real Madrid that he can manage a locker room full of egos, with a Cristiano Ronaldo who even agreed to sometimes go through the bench. And with Lionel Messi, Neymar, Sergio Ramos, Marco Verratti or Angel Di Maria , the PSG does not lack stars …

Pochettino to Manchester United at the end of the season?

What confirms the track Zinedine Zidane, is also the situation of Mauricio Pochettino. We announced on that the Paris Saint-Germain has already looked into the question of his departure, while last summer he extended his contract until 2023. Moreover, MARCA assures us that a change could have occurred as early as this fall! With the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjær , the leaders of Manchester United would have thought strongly of Mauricio Pochettino, who achieved great things in Tottenham in the past. Finally, the Spanish daily explains that this file would have been handed over at the end of the season, with Ralf Ragnick who should therefore go to the end of his interim. Then, Pochettino could well decide to revive in the Premier League, while PSG will have a royal road for Zidane.
