DAILY EXPRESS SPORT: Mauricio Pochettino is expected to become the new Paris Saint-Germain manager according to reports the Daily Express trusts..
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the former Tottenham Hotspur boss has reached an agreement with the Ligue 1 champions to replace Thomas Tuchel who was sacked on Thursday.
Tuchel departed PSG on Christmas Eve despite guiding them into the Champions League knockout stage and sitting a point behind Lyon in the Ligue 1 table.
Pochettino was quickly installed as one of the favourites to replace Tuchel at the Parc des Princes, and now it would appear that an official announcement is all that remains.
Out of work since leaving Spurs over a year ago, the Argentine looks set to realise a lifelong dream by managing PSG – whom he used to play for.
“I have always said that one day it would be a pleasure to manage a big club like Paris, a dream,” Pochettino previously told RMC in 2016.
“I try to watch all of their games, especially in the Champions League and sometimes I speak with [former PSG assistant coach] Jean-Louis Gasset.
“I watch a lot of live matches in the French league.
“The championship is not very attractive as PSG are a long way ahead of the other teams and I mostly look at the French league because it is a source of major players, players who would adapt well to playing in England.”
