French champions Paris Saint-Germain want former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho to replace Mauricio Pochettino as manager, according to TalkSPORT
Pochettino is expected to be sacked in the coming days and PSG has reportedly identified Mourinho as the ideal replacement.
Mourinho recently guided Roma to Europa Conference League glory
However, the club’s first major European trophy – and a respectable sixth-place finish in Serie A
Despite recently claiming he will continue as Roma boss next season
PSG believes they have the pulling power to make Mourinho have a change of heart.
If Mourinho becomes PSG boss, it will be the second time the Portuguese manager is replacing Pochettino in recent years after the same switch took place at Tottenham in 2019
PSG are keen on winning the Champions League and believes they can achieve that by appointing Mourinho as manager.
Pochettino couldn’t guide PSG past the Round of 16 in the Champions League this season, as they were dumped out by eventual-winners Real Madrid.
Paris Saint-Germain has dominated domestically since Qatar Sports Investment took over the club in 2011
but the European trophy has remained elusive.
Mourinho is one of the most successful managers in history, winning every honor in England, Spain, Italy, and Portugal, as well as all three of Europe’s top prizes.
