Zinedine Zidane, who had been a frontrunner to replace Mauricio Pochettino as the new Paris Saint-Germain manager, will not be taking the job, according to Telefoot.

Despite strong links suggesting that the former France captain would take the role, it seems that the club are searching for a different option.

The 49-year-old has been out of job since his second spell at Real Madrid ended in early 2021, having won the La Liga title in 2019/20.

PSG are set to fire Pochettino just days after winning the Ligue 1 title, as part of a wide range of changes being made at the club.

The Ligue 1 giants signed off their 2021/22 campaign with a dominant 5-0 victory over Metz on Saturday night, as Kylian Mbappe also announced he would be signing a new deal with the club.

Mbappe has been promised more control in the ongoing of the club, which could spark the imminent departure of both Pochettino and Sporting Director Leonardo.
