Jose Mourinho is reportedly one of the frontrunners to become the new Paris Saint-Germain manager.
As a consequence of Champions League failures and frosty relationships with high-profile members of the squad, Mauricio Pochettino’s stint at the Parc des Princes appears set to come to an end.
In terms of top managers that the Parisiens could replace him with, the options are few. It’s hard to imagine many, if any, of the elite bracket of managers leaving their respective clubs ahead of next season.
That has forced PSG to think a little outside of the box, and as per breaking media reports, AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho is being seriously considered as the man capable of replacing Pochettino.

Mourinho steered his AS Roma side into the top six in Serie A, as well as winning the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League trophy, beating Feyenoord by a single-goal margin in the final.
It served as evidence that Mourinho knows how to win in Europe. He’s proven it time and time again. PSG are understood to be interested – and it doesn’t take a brainbox to figure out why.
Winning the Champions League has been out of reach for PSG ever since the Qatari money came along. Mourinho could be the man to stop the drought. Let’s see if it comes to fruition.
