Zinedine Zidane will now replace Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain after a breakthrough in negotiations between the former France star’s representatives and the Ligue 1 champions.
The Parc des Princes club have been looking to move on from the Argentine and install a new manager in charge ahead of the upcoming campaign, despite a return to domestic success this term.
Former Real Madrid boss Zidane, one of the most decorated coaches of the past decade from two spells in charge of Los Blancos, has long been linked with the role but has now edged closer to the position amid a reportedly eye-watering offer.
Zidane reacting to the contract is however excited to joing the club.
In his words:
“I am delighted to be joining Paris Saint-Germain, which I consider is the most ambitious and exciting club in world football.”
“I believe strongly in and share the vision of the club and I cannot wait to get started to further unleash the great potential of this exceptional club.”
The new French top-flight season begins on August 6 with the French Trophée des Champions five days earlier as PSG face Nantes in Israel.
