PSG Mercato: Will Zinedine Zidane succeed Pochettino at Paris SG? Qatar would be on the verge of realizing its big dream for the Parisian club.
PSG Mercato: Zinedine Zidane is ready to come to Paris SG!
Free of any commitment since leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season, Zinedine Zidane could well return to service on the bench of Paris Saint-Germain from this summer. Big favorite for the succession of Mauricio Pochettino, who should be thanked at the end of the current financial year despite his current contract until June 2023, the 49-year-old Marseille technician would ultimately not be against the idea of taking over the Parisian team.
Better, the Spanish media El Nacional assures this Tuesday that Zizou would have given his agreement to the Qatari leaders of PSG to train the Rouge et Bleu next season. Great dream of the Emir of Qatar, owner of the club of the capital, the 1998 world champion would even be already working on the framework of his future workforce by preparing the next transfer window of the Parisians. And the first names of the players he would like to see land in Paris with him would have leaked.
PSG Mercato: Zidane in Paris with Benzema?
“If I had contact with Zinedine Zidane to probe it? You see me saying today: “Is it Zidane who will replace Deschamps?” We’ll see. Zidane may take PSG. For the France team, you have to be free. But today, we’re going to put Didier in the best conditions to win this World Cup.”recently declared Noël Le Graët, president of the French Football Federation in the columns of the newspaper L’Équipe.
El Nacional now confirms that the former playmaker of the France team would have said “yes” to take the place of Mauricio Pochettino next season. And for his line of attack, he would have already spoken with his former protege Karim Benzema to try to convince him to follow him to Camp des Loges. The Iberian media even indicates that the possibility of seeing the former OL player land at PSG this summer would be very real.
The 34-year-old French international was “disappointed” by his president’s extension offer Florentino Perez. Under contract until June 2023, Benzema, to whom the Merengues would only offer a one-year lease, where he would like to sign for two more years, could therefore change scenery this summer. If Zidane arrives, Benzema could therefore follow him to the Rouge et Bleu in the coming months.
