Antonio Conte is reportedly set to leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season to join Paris Saint-Germain, with current coach Mauricio Pochettino set to leave this year’s Ligue 1 champions this summer.
Although the Italian coach was appointed Spurs manager in early November, it has been speculated that he wants to leave the club.
According to French club Le Parisien, the PSG board wants Pochettino out after failing to meet the Champions League club’s demands, following the last 16 exits from Real Madrid.
The report adds that Conte has offered PSG a two-year contract, with a possible transfer between France and Spurs to see Pochettino return to Tottenham.
Pochettino has one year left on his contract and will reportedly cost 12.6 million pounds to be sacked by PSG.
Having been selected as Manchester United’s new manager before it was announced that Erik ten Hag would take over last week, Pochettino is looking at PSG’s exit door as they feel he has not done so.
Zinedine Zidane is also in contention to become PSG’s next coach, although there is a good chance he will replace Didier Deschamps as France’s manager after the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
Conte is frustrated with Spurs’ incompatibility as they continue to fight for a place in the Champions League next season.
Spurs’ results in the Premier League tell the story of their season, as Newcastle United and Aston Villa’s two biggest wins were followed by a 1-0 loss to Brighton and a draw against Brentford at the weekend.
It looks like Spurs will need to enter the Champions League if they want to keep Conte, and anything small will see the 52-year-old team.
