Despite a contract that runs until 2023, Mauricio Pochettino is not certain to stay on the bench for Paris Saint-Germain this summer. To succeed him, the name of Antonio Conte has been put forward. But the former emblematic player of Juve is waiting to have more visibility at Tottenham to decide on his future.
If PSG has recovered the title of French Ligue 1 champion, it is nevertheless about to end a very contrasting season. The capital club was prematurely released from the Champions League and the Coupe de France. His magic trio Neymar – Messi – Mbappé has only rarely shone together. What to seal the fate of the coach, Mauricio Pochettino? The Argentinian seems determined to stay but Paris is open to anything. If the name of Zinédine Zidane had made a lot of supporters fantasize a few weeks ago, it is now Antonio Conte who is the favorite. The current Tottenham manager is focused on the final sprint with Spurs. Then, it will decide on its future, depending on the guarantees provided or not by its leaders.

According to the famous journalist Fabrizio Romano, in his column for Caughtoffside, Antonio Conte could link his future to that of his striker Harry Kane. The 28-year-old English international striker, nicknamed Prince Harry, has been more effective in selection (14 goals) than in the Premier League (13) this season. Never mind, he remains a major element of the Spurs offensive line, as well as the Korean Son (20 goals in the Championship).
Our colleague explains that at first, Antonio Conte wants to qualify Tottenham for the next Champions League. In the process, he would like to have guarantees concerning the next summer transfer window, in the sense of arrivals, but also departures. Harry Kane, mentioned for a long time at Manchester United, could strengthen the Red Devils. The latter, who saw neighbor and rival City enlist Erling Haaland, could quickly take action. Devoid of his major player, Conte could then look elsewhere, and thus be much more receptive with Paris Saint-Germain than he is currently. To be followed closely.
