Mauricio Pochettino set for imminent PSG exit as Tottenham contacts intensify

Mauricio Pochettino set for imminent PSG exit as Tottenham contacts intensify


A manager exchange of sorts could be on the cards between Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham Hotspur this summer, if reports are to be believed.

This comes amid mounting claims that the former are on the verge of sending boss Mauricio Pochettino on his way.

Just last night, PSG clinched the club’s 10th Ligue 1 title, owing to a Lionel Messi special in a 1-1 stalemate with RC Lens at the Parc des Princes.

24 hours on from securing the first piece of silverware of his managerial career, though, the aforementioned Pochettino looks set to part ways with the French heavyweights, on the back of another season of failure in the Champions League.

An official announcement is understood to be imminent, with both parties viewing it as best to go their separate ways.

Conte and Poch to swap?

So, what next for PSG, and Pochettino alike?

Well, if the ensuing reports stemming from the French media are to be believed, then something of a shock managerial merry-go-round could be on the cards come the summer.

This comes amid the suggestion that those in a position of power in Paris have identified Antonio Conte as a potential instillation on the club’s bench.

Though Zinedine Zidane is understood to be the favourite for the post, Conte is viewed as a viable alternative, with the reliable Le Parisien having gone as far as to suggest that the Tottenham boss has himself already made his interest in the position known.

Not only that, but, should Conte ultimately go on to swap the English capital for its French equivalent, then Mauricio Pochettino could too be the man introduced in his place.

As per GFFN, contacts between Spurs chief Daniel Levy and ex-boss Pochettino have ‘continued incessantly’ for some time now, amid efforts to lure the Argentine back to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
