Former Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane is ready to take over from Mauricio Pochettino as the new manager of Paris St Germain for the next season.

Zidane who has won the UEFA Champions league three times as a coach with Real Madrid, has been without a club since the end of the 2020/21 season.

According to French radio station RMC on Friday said that Zidane and PSG were “close to finding an agreement” although they did not cite any sources.

In January 2021, Pochettino was hired as the manager of the Parc des Princes club. He did well to help PSG end second in Ligue 1.

On the performance of PSG, they had an impressive Champions League under Pochettino, which was halted in the penultimate stage by Manchester City.

It was an impressive start, defeating Barcelona at the Camp Nou in round of 16 and a remarkable feat, stunning the previous defending champions, Bayern Munich in both the legs in quarterfinal.

PSG came back strong 2021/22 season, emerging champions the Ligue 1, but suffered defeat in the round of 16 from the reigning Champions League winners, Real Madrid.

Apart from the three Champions League, other titles Zi Zou has won are the La Liga once each in both his spells, bagged the Supercopa, finished as champions in Super Cup and FIFA World Cup twice in his first spell (2016, 2017).
