PSG Mercato: While Mauricio Pochettino should be thanked this summer, Pep Guardiola would still be in the plans of the leaders of Paris SG.
PSG Mercato: Pochettino’s succession engaged, Guardiola quoted!
Barring a huge last-minute change, Mauricio Pochettino should not continue on the bench of Paris Saint-Germain next season. As the daily says The Team in its edition this Friday, the leaders of the capital club have started looking for a new coach to part with the Argentinian at the end of the season. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and his family would have already made the calculations and would now know that a dismissal of Pochettino would cost them between 10 and 15 million euros in compensation. Long-time dream of the Emir of Qatar, owner of PSG, Zinédine Zidane refused the job, when he has been free since the end of last season, despite a titanic offer.
Also tried, Antonio Conte doesn’t seem particularly hot to leave Tottenham. The other targets that are Joachim Löw, Thiago Motta and Marcelo Gallardo do not seem to be unanimous within the Parisian management, according to the regional newspaper. The Ile-de-France media then assures that the Qatari decision-makers of Paris SG would also think of two big world stars who are Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp. After his extension until June 2026, the 54-year-old German is downright untouchable at Liverpool, but the situation would be quite different.
PSG Mercato: Guardiola makes a sensational announcement about his future
Present on the Manchester City bench since July 2016, Pep Guardiola ends his contract in one year. And according to his own words, an extension is not yet on the agenda at the moment. “If I extend my contract, it won’t be before the end of next season. It won’t happen before. I have been here for many years and I have to see how the team and ourselves, how we are together,” the former FC Barcelona boss said in an interview with Sky Sports.
What to maintain the hope on the side of Paris Saint-Germain, where according to The Team, “no potential successor is unanimous internally. After Barça, Bayern Munich and Manchester City, Guardiola could thus land in Paris to try to win his first Champions League for the Rouge et Bleu. Internally, the brand new champion of France would even consider “a temporary solution” while waiting for the end of the contract of Guardiola among the Citizens in the summer of 2023.
