Priority of Qatar to replace Mauricio Pochettino, Zinedine Zidane has already met the leaders of PSG, including Leonardo and Jean-Claude Blanc. And the French technician now seems open to the idea of joining the Parisian club and has even already made a huge request.
As revealed exclusively by le10sport.com, the case Pochettino is now debated within the club of the capital. Its future is far from assured and Qatar's priority is called Zinedine Zidane . And the rumors surrounding the Argentine coach have also accelerated in recent hours. And for good reason, the native of Murphy would be the favorite of Manchester United to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjær . Moreover, Mauricio Pochettino is evasive about his future. After the loss to Manchester City , the former manager of Tottenham assured in a press conference that “the players know our situation. They also know theirs. We live in a business with many rumors. Sometimes they are positive and other times negative. Still, I don't want to talk about these rumors. “Faced with this situation, PSG would also be torn between the desire not to lose his coach during the season, and that of jumping at the opportunity that arises with Zinedine Zidane , whose entourage, starting with his close advisor Alain Migliaccio, would welcome an arrival in Paris.
Negotiations are progressing … and Zidane is already claiming the head by Leonardo
And obviously, the PSG is determined to seize the opportunity. This Thursday, Le Parisien dropped a little bomb on this subject revealing that the two parties were in negotiations. Zinedine Zidane would have been seen at the Royal Monceau during the second week of the All Saints holidays to attend a meeting with the management of PSG . A meeting attended by at least Leonardo , sports director, and Jean-Claude Blanc , general manager of the capital club, who knows the former number 10 of the France team very well. This therefore confirms the will of PSG to strike very hard by betting on Zinedine Zidane . The aim is to attract him at the end of the season, but the situation of Mauricio Pochettino , announced in the sights of Manchester United , could accelerate the process. And that's good because while Zinedine Zidane has long seemed reluctant to join the club in the capital, the situation has changed. In his entourage, it is even estimated that the “planets are aligned” for his arrival at PSG . His love for Marseille, his hometown, no longer seems to be a barrier to his coming to Paris. Operation Zidane is therefore clearly launched by Qatar, which is looking for “a coach who is used to managing the stars”, as a Qatari source sums it up in Le Parisien. And in addition, the Frenchman knows how to win the Champions League , a competition he has won three times with Real Madrid , and that PSG want to drop out for the first time. “And apart from Guardiola, which is not possible in Paris, and Zidane, there is no real choice,” blows a source to the regional media. In other words, the perfect moment for the arrival of Zinedine Zidane to PSG seems to have arrived.
