Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will become the next PSG boss with only a few final contract details yet to be resolved according to Mirror Football.
The Argentine will take over from Thomas Tuchel who was sacked as PSG coach on Christmas Eve following a controversial interview.
Pochettino, who has been without a job for over a year after he was sacked by Spurs last November, could be heading on to manage the club he captained during his playing years.
He played for the French club for two seasons and captained them during the 2002/03 campaign.
“I have always said that one day it would be a pleasure to manage a big club like Paris, a dream,” Pochettino said recently.
“I try to watch all of their games, especially in the Champions League and sometimes I speak with [Paris Saint-Germain assistant coach] Jean-Louis Gasset.”
His move to Parc-de Princes would also delight his former club, Spurs’ as they will no longer have to pay Pochettino’s wages.
The north London club has continued to pay Pochettino’s £8.5million-per-year salary due to a payroll clause inserted in the lucrative contract he signed in 2018 – which intended to keep him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until 2023.
According to Football Insider as quoted by Mirror Football, Spurs will no longer be obliged to pay Pochettino’s wages if he puts pen to paper to become the new PSG manager.
