It’s going to be a criss-cross as PSG and Manchester United appear to be exchanging managerial interests. Sports Village Square learnt that Paris Saint-German have already contacted an apparent willing Zinedine Zidane as their first choice to replace Argentina’s Mauricio Pochettino who appears interested in furthering his coaching career at Manchester United.
The Argentinian coach has not told his current employers he wants to leave. Moreover, he has not been contacted by United either.
Despite that, it’s claimed that Pochettino is still to fully settle in the French capital, and an offer from United could tempt him to return to the Premier League.
That’s why PSG have already made contact with Zidane to establish if he’s prepared to take over in the middle of the season.
Previously, it was reported that Zidane had rejected Manchester United’s approach himself.
The lack of knowledge of the English language might limit his man-management skills in the Premier League. Besides, his family does not want to live in Manchester.
Having coached Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, If he moves to Paris where Lionel Messi plays, Zidane will have a rare privilege of having handled the two most prolific footballers of the current era.
The same will apply to Pochettino who is currently handling Messi at PSG. He will have to handle Ronaldo at Manchester United.
