The Paris Saint-Germain spent this season for a traumatic episode after being eliminated in the round of 16 of the UEFA champions league. When he seemed to have secured the classification to the quarterfinals, Real Madrid staged an epic comeback at the Santiago Bernabéu and now the French are thirsty for revenge. They will not seek a revenge match on the field, but on the transfer market. And it is that according to the Catalan newspaper El Nacional, PSG wants to sign a symbol of the recent history of the white club and an old desire of the president Florentino Perez.
The first is none other than Zinedine Zidane. According to the aforementioned source, the top brass of the Ligue 1 club have been very disappointed with the role of Mauricio Pochettino on the bench and want to replace him at the end of the season. There are several candidates, but few like ‘Zizou’.
Despite the love he professes for Marseille, Paris Saint-Germain wants his services convinced that the Frenchman is the kind of coach that Lionel Messi, Neymar and company need. Not for nothing did he win three Champions Leagues while wearing the Real Madrid tracksuit.
Thus, PSG would deal a heavy blow to the pride of the ‘Vikingo’ team. And it is that Zidane is one of the legends in Chamartín after his time as a player and then as a coach. The Marseillais would end up directing one of the clubs that year after year dispute Madrid for the title of European football.
|ZINEDINE ZIDANE||AGE||LAST CLUB (DT)||TITLES (SD)|
|49 years||Real Madrid||Champions League (3), Club World Cup (2), LaLiga (2), Spanish Super Cup (2) and European Super Cup (2)|
And I wouldn’t come alone
At PSG they have set out to inflict a fatal wound on Real Madrid’s pride, which is why Zinedine Zidane is not alone on the transfer agenda. In the Parc des Princes they also want Paul Pogbaa player who for years was looking for the leader of LaLiga, but who could never tie.
Precisely, it was during the stage of ‘Zizou’ as coach of Madrid in which Florentino Pérez sought the signing of the crack of the Man Utd. The French was the main supporter of him. However, the series of obstacles put up by the English cut short Pogba’s arrival in LaLiga.
As is well known, the 2018 Russian world champion ends his contract at Old Trafford on June 30 this year. Both the footballer and the club are very far from reaching a renewal agreement, so the midfielder would arrive at the Parc des Princes as a free agent.
“Pogba has already decided which club he wants to play for next season, Paris Saint-Germain, and even more so if it is confirmed that his next coach is Zinedine Zidane. The French coach was the great defender of his signing for Real Madrid and in the negotiations with PSG he has once again put the name of the French midfielder on the table ”publishes The National.
It should be noted that Paul Pogba, in addition to PSG, has been playing at Barcelona. His contractual situation at Manchester United makes him a highly sought-after player in the transfer market. Any club would like a player of his quality and at zero cost for the 2022-23 season.
