Zinédine Zidane could become PSG coach soon if Mauricio Pochettino, currently in office, decides to leave Paris.
Towards a waltz of incredible technicians? The dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for Manchester United has had such a resonance that it is now shaking the Parisian club behind the scenes. While the Mancunian club has appointed Mickael Carrick as interim, the Red Devils would indeed want to recruit a renowned technician.
If the Glazer family, owners of the club, wanted at all costs to have Zinédine Zidane so that he could find Cristiano Ronaldo, the former boss of Real Madrid does not want to come to Manchester for two reasons: the barrier of the language and also his wife who would not wish to settle in the city of the North of England. Information unveiled by the Spanish press.
The other name on which Manchester United wants to fall back is none other than Mauricio Pochettino, the current coach of PSG despite being under contract until 2023. The Glazers would like to try to bring him in this winter.
If no approach has yet been made, according to several rumors, the Argentine technician would be very interested in a return to England after two successful stints at Southampton and Tottenham. Contrary to what many say, he has no problem in Paris other than his relationship with Leonardo, the sporting director.

In the event of Pochettino’s departure, PSG already knows who could replace him: Zinédine Zidane. Paris has indeed never hidden its desire to associate all its stars with “Zizou” to try to win the Champions League which he has also won three times with Real Madrid. But also to calm the desires of Kylian Mbappé to leave.
According to Jason Burt, journalist at the Telegraph, PSG would also authorize Pochettino to leave if he claimed it but under conditions. Everything could therefore settle in the coming days or weeks.
