Eager to join Manchester United, Mauricio Pochettino has already made known his position to the leaders of PSG. They are waiting for the green light from … Zidane.
Last summer, after hearing the name of Mauricio Pochettino being pronounced on the side of Tottenham and Real Madrid, PSG thought they were doing the right thing by extending Mauricio Pochettino’s contract. This announcement was presented as a common desire to make people understand that the Argentinian saw himself in the long term at Paris SG. But in the heart of the month of November, in an interview with the Guardian which had caused a lot of talk, Pochettino recalled that it was PSG who had simply activated an option to extend it, and that it was nothing to do with it. “ I did not extend. When I signed in January, it was a 1.5 year contract and 1 year option. The club activated this option and now it’s one more season », Had delivered Mauricio Pochettino. We have known a more enthusiastic coach to see his contract extended.

In the meantime, the prudence of the “Poch” can be understood given his rating of love which is soaring. Between the supporters who find it difficult to “endure” the stammering game, criticism from the press and consultants, and the dream of Paris SG leaders to bring in Zinedine Zidane, the Argentinian must feel the wind of the ball. So much so that he is getting closer to Manchester United, who will replace Ralf Rangnick at the end of the season. The rapprochement is such that the former coach of Tottenham could well find an agreement in the coming weeks. This is what David Billington, a well-known columnist specializing in football, said in particular by the Sunday Express and the Daily Mail.
Everything is in Zidane’s hands
Disarmais consultant, Billington delivered his information for the Star, with a new light on the situation. ” It has been explained to me that Mauricio Pochettino is closer than ever to reaching a deal to join Manchester United next summer. I have been told that the Argentine had let his superiors know that he would like to leave PSG at the end of the season, but PSG did not accept. Manchester United would have to pay compensation, in the order of 12 million euros, and offer Pochettino a 4-year contract. PSG will only agree to let Pochettino go if they agree with Zidane, but for the moment he has refused, saying he does not want to make his comeback yet ”, explained the journalist, convinced that it is Zinedine Zidane who has the keys concerning the future coach of PSG. Words that confirm the trends of recent weeks, where Pochettino could have walked out the door at Christmas if ever the former Real Madrid coach had said yes to Qatar’s offers.
