PSG wants to terminate Pochettino to sign Zidane
The French coach and highly successful at Real Madrid Zinedine Zidane is currently in the sights of PSG. This is how the French want to hire the former Real Madrid coach at all costs, who has been without a team since last year after leaving the white team.
According to the French media, negotiations between the club and the French coach have already begun, although Zidane has also been linked to Manchester United, which would allow him to return to train Cristiano Ronaldo.
Despite this, the media such as Le Parisien, which is one of the closest to PSG, have ensured that the negotiations go further and ensure that the club's emissaries and the coach met this Thursday in one of the most expensive hotels in Paris to negotiate your arrival.
Zidane main priority of PSG
The French coach is becoming the main priority of the French club, a club that has not yet taken off or shows its best quality of play under the command of Mauricio Pochettino. Despite the fact that PSG is the leader of the French league, and they are already classified for the round of 16, the team's performance is not convincing.
Clearly PSG has one of the best squads in the world and the best forward of all, so the club president wants a destructive team on the pitch and that is above all its rivals.
One of the latest failures for the French club and coach Mauricio Pochettino was their defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday after losing 2 goals to 1 and failing to secure first place in the group. This result has accelerated zidane's search to lead PSG.
If the Frenchman is hired, then Mauricio Pochettino could go to Manchester United, a club that also has him in its sights like Zidane.
With the arrival of Zidane to the PSG club, they could cover two of his biggest concerns. One of them is the management of a changing room full of football figures such as Di María, Messi, Neymar, Ramos, Mbappé and many others.
Zidane who already knows very well what it is to work with these types of players and with whom he triumphed in his two stages with Real Madrid. While the other concern is that of Mbappé who may be marching for free next summer, this being the worst nightmare for them.
Therefore, with Zidane in the club, the main idol of the French forward since his childhood, the chances that Mbappé decides to stay to be managed by his idol are very wide, this would be the last tab of the French club to retain the forward and avoid that this is signed by Real Madrid.
Leonardo has denied all this operation
PSG sports director Leonardo has confirmed to the media that Pochettino will continue to be the team's coach, he also assured that the Argentine has never asked to leave and has added that there is no contact with Zidane to replace him.
"I think it is very important to be able to clarify the situation due to the amount of false news that is circulating in recent days. Pochettino has a contract until 2023. " Leonardo has expressed.
"We do not want him to leave nor have we thought about it. He has never asked to leave, and no other club has contacted us about him. We have a lot for him about Zinedine Zidane, for everything he has achieved as a player and coach, but I clearly state that there is no contact with him, and we have not met him either". The leader added.
However, local newspapers cite a meeting in early November at the Royal Monceau hotel, where Zidane and at least Jean-Claude Blanc and Leonarlo would have attended.
"It is very ridiculous to think that there was an encounter with Zidane in a great hotel in Paris, in the eyes of the whole world." Leonardo commented after all the false news about the hiring of the former Real Madrid coach.
