A new era. After a disappointing year and far from management’s expectations, Paris Saint-Germain wants to change everything, or almost. Leonardo was dismissed at the end of the season. Luis Campos should arrive to bring his expertise and give new impetus to the capital club. As for the players, the residents of the Parc des Prince won the big match of the transfer window by managing to extend Kylian Mbappé until 2025. This, while all the lights were green to sign for Real Madrid. An opponent who however seems to have the advantage on the Aurélien Tchouaméni file, the other priority of the Parisians.
In parallel with the transfer window, the 2022 French champions must very quickly answer an essential question: who will be on the bench next season? At the end of the contract in 2023, Mauricio Pochettino has been announced as leaving for months and months. But the Argentinian is officially still at the head of the PSG flag team. Failed by Manchester United, who preferred to bet on Erik ten Hag, Pochettino retains chances of staying in Paris. He has good relations with Kylian Mbappé, who is listened to by his management. In addition, Paris would not rule out leaving him in place if the case for the future coach was not conclusive.
Mancini wants to find a club
The Team even revealed a few days ago that the Parisian leaders would keep him this year and then target Pep Guardiola for 2023. The Manchester City coach is one of the coaches who appeal to the Qataris. Qataris who today dream of Zinedine Zidane. Free since leaving Real Madrid a year ago, the Frenchman was approached. He would be PSG’s top priority. But at present, he has apparently declined the invitation. The Parisians would also follow Thiago Motta, former player of the house, Christophe Galtier, close to Luis Campos, Ruben Amorim and Sérgio Conceição. This Friday, another name came out of the hat.
Il Messaggero reveals that Roberto Mancini would interest Paris Saint-Germain. At the head of the Italian national team, the 57-year-old coach, who worked for Manchester City and Inter Milan in particular, is still under contract for 4 years, despite not qualifying for the 2022 World Cup. But the Italian media explains that he could leave his post after the four Nations League matches since he would get tired and would like to be at a club again. “I miss working every day”, he confessed recently. If he ever got started, the French club would have a card to play with a man who knows certain elements of the workforce like Marco Verratti and Gianluigi Donnarumma. Be careful however, because Galatasaray is also on the spot.
