Paris Saint-Germain are interested in making Jose Mourinho their next manager as they prepare to cut ties with Mauricio Pochettino
The Ligue 1 champions have been planning to sack Mauricio Pochettino at the end of the season and have been keen to sign Antonio Conte, who has confirmed his commitment to Tottenham.
Along with the new manager, PSG have also closed the appointment of Luis Campos as their new sporting director, and sources have confirmed in 90min that the former Lille and Monaco boss is considering his options as he prepares to sever ties with Pochettino.
PSG correspondents approached Jose Mourinho to assess his interest in taking the job, and the Ligue 1 side were impressed with the prospect of working with the Roma manager.
Jose Mourinho is known to be close to Campos, who worked under Real Madrid, and the manager even failed in his efforts to bring his Portuguese team-mate to Manchester United early in his career.
Indirect contact has been made with Mourinho’s camp about the move to Paris, but several sources have confirmed in the 90m that the former United and Chelsea boss has been linked with a move to Rome.
Jose Mourinho is understood to be incredibly happy with the Roma and has even publicly stated that he does not plan to move away from the Europa Conference League champions, who hope to become champions soon.
“I have a lot of respect for all the clubs I’ve worked with, but today I’m 100% Romanista, because these fans are amazing,” he said after winning the Conference League.
“I will stay at AS Roma, no doubt, even if there is something to offer. I want to stay here. ”
Next to Mourinho, Campos is understood to be interested in working with Nice manager Christophe Galtier and Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim, but Sporting’s Ruben Amorim is still believed to be among PSG’s top targets.
