Report: Tottenham man tops PSG summer hit-list with exit on the cards
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is one of two managers who are top of the most wanted list in the French capital to replace PSG manager Unai Emery this summer, according to a report.
ESPN has revealed that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is also highly regarded along with Poch.
Emery’s current deal at the Parc des Princes is unlikely to be renewed at the end of the season.
And with the Ligue 1 outfit’s chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi disappearing early from the stadium following their defeat against Real Madrid in the Champions League, the Spaniard’s future looks bleak.
It is expected that he will exit the French giants in the summer.
Pochettino is thought to be someone that can bring long-term success to the French giants along with a style of attacking play Al-Khelaifi would like to see in Paris.

Football Insider verdict:
The lure of Ligue 1 football does not compare to the excitement and challenges that Pochettino faces week in and week out in the Premier League so it would seem highly unlikely that the Argentine boss would want to switch England for France. But that’s forgetting that as a player, Poch played for the French giants. The promise of endless money and a chance to return to his previous employer’s may then carry some weight, but it still won’t happen. The only place that the Lillywhites boss is heading away from North London is Real Madrid.
