The next transfer market appears to be focused on managers. Hans-Dieter Flick left Bayern Munich, Antonio Conte left Inter and Zinedine Zidane left Real Madrid. In addition, Ronald Koeman (Barcelona) and Andrea Pirlo (Juventus), seem to be on the tightrope. According to the European press, the last to join this list would be Mauricio Pochettino, who could leave his position at the helm of Paris Saint Germain despite having won the League Cup and the French Cup.

Losing Ligue 1 at the hands of Lille and being eliminated in the semi-finals of the Champions League at the hands of Manchester City, added to his bad relationship with sporting director Leonardo, could cause him to leave the French team. It is worth noting that this is not the first time that the Brazilian has a short circuit with a coach. In the near past he had some run-ins with the German Thomas Tuchel.

This news came to light in the midst of the tug of war between the PSG leadership and the surroundings of Kylian Mbappé to try to extend the bond of the young French star (his contract ends in June 2022 and Real Madrid's lurking). The one they have already reached an agreement with is with the Brazilian Neymar, the other great figure on the squad. The former Barcelona will continue to be linked to the Parisian team until 2025.

Rumors of a possible departure for Pochettino took on even more significance in the last hours after The Athletic, Telefoot and Sky Sport assured that the former Newell's Old Boys quarry emerged in talks with Daniel Levy, president of Tottenham.

The Spurs didn't have a good season from the hand of José Mourinho (brand new coach of Rome) and they seek to return to be protagonists with the Argentine strategist, who commanded the London first team from mid-2014 to the end of 2019.
