Mauricio Pochettino was also linked with a spectacular return to North London, with the 49-year-old said to be unhappy in Paris and told the Ligue 1 giants that he wanted to quit (Liberation).
Sky Sports also confirmed that talks between Daniel Levy and Pochettino had taken place, but the Argentine still remains in the French capital with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi insisting that he has been hurt by talk of his exit (L’Equipe).
French news outlet Le10 Sport have today claimed that PSG have made Zinedine Zidane their main target should Pochettino leave.
