For the succession of Christophe Galtier on the PSG bench, Qatar still dreams of Zinedine Zidane. But the former Real Madrid coach has a preference for his next club.
PSG Mercato: Zinedine Zidane to replace Galtier?
Announced to be leaving at the end of the season, Christophe Galtier surprised many during his press conference on Thursday. “I am planning to be the coach at Paris Saint-Germain next season. We are working with Luis on the architecture of the squad for next season with the modifications we want to make to improve the team, have more variety in our game through different organizations, have a better balance. We have been working for weeks and also more specifically last week,” explained the Marseille technician.
But on Friday, Team indicates that Paris SG is indeed considering replacing Galtier this summer. And the sports daily adds that “Zinedine Zidane is the PRIORITY of the PSG leaders to succeed Christophe Galtier. The file seems complex, but PSG wants to give itself the means to convince the French coach.” However, the 50-year-old from Marseille seems to have other plans for the next step in his career.
PSG Mercato: Zinedine Zidane positions himself to coach Juve.
Indeed, RMC Sport explains that “the legend of the Blues – always polite and attentive when solicited – does not seem to agree with the governance in place at PSG. Very attached to his freedom of action and his sporting power, he fears not having all the weapons he deems essential to coach a team like PSG.” The too much power given to the stars in the locker room would not encourage the 1998 World Champion to come to PSG.
Free since the summer of 2021 and his departure from Real Madrid, Zidane would be ready to return to service and would make Juventus Turin his priority. Mentioned again in Madrid to possibly replace Carlo Ancelotti, Zizou would be aiming for Massimiliano Allegri‘s position and would be ready to spend a season without playing in a European Cup. But the Old Lady must first settle the issue of Allegri‘s dismissal and the 20 million euros it could cost, as the Italian club is obliged to balance its books. “An obstacle far from insignificant to marry Zidane to Juventus, but not impossible,” RMC specifies. Paris Saint-Germain has been warned.
