Zinedine Zidane, a former Real Madrid coach, is expected to succeed Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
PSG are preparing to part ways with Pochettino at the conclusion of the season, according to Caught Offside via Le Parisien, and have chosen Zidane as the Argentine's replacement at Le Parc des Princes.
Pochettino has struggled in the UEFA Champions League since taking over at PSG last season, and he is unlikely to return to the French Ligue 1 giants next season.
Zidane is expected to bring in a new era at the Parc des Princes, according to PSG.
Zidane has had great success with Real Madrid, but he is currently unattached to a role in football.
The 49-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to become coach of the Parisians, France national team and Manchester United in the past.
Following the glorious spell at Real Madrid, Zidane decided to take a sabbatical, but returned to the LaLiga giants when they landed themselves in trouble again.
His second spell at Santiago Bernabeu didn’t see him win another UEFA Champions League, but he did lead Real Madrid to their 34th LaLiga title in the 2019-20 season.
The Frenchman has been reluctant to take up a new project since leaving his Real Madrid job at the end of the 2020-2021 season.
