Six years after the signing of Unai Emery at PSG from Seville, the Parisian staff is targeting Julen Lopetegui.
In search of a successor to Mauricio Pochettino, Paris Saint-Germain is exploring several avenues in June. Zinedine Zidane is still Qatar’s absolute dream while Luis Campos is thinking of Christophe Galtier, who wants to leave Nice to join the French capital. In parallel, another track is dug by the staff of Paris SG according to information from Estadio Deportivo. And no one saw it coming since the Andalusian media indicates that the reigning French champion has positioned himself to recruit Julen Lopetegui, the coach of Sevilla FC. Six years after recruiting Unai Emery from the Andalusian club, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and the Emir of Qatar could do it again, this time by offering the services of the man who also held the positions of coach of Real Madrid and as Spain coach.

The Spanish media understands that the interest of PSG is serious enough to shake the leaders of Sevilla FC. And for good reason, the Andalusian club remembers the way Paris stole Unai Emery from them six years ago and the Spaniards have no desire for this to happen again after the good season achieved by the players of Sevilla FC under the orders of Julen Lopetegui. Under contract with the Andalusian club until June 2024, the Basque technician will certainly not be insensitive to the interest of a club such as Paris Saint-Germain. It now remains to be seen whether the 55-year-old Spaniard is a plan A for Luis Campos or simply an alternative solution in the event of failure in the Zinedine Zidane and Christophe Galtier files for example. Be that as it may, PSG’s interest in the former goalkeeper is very real and on the Sevilla side, we tremble at the idea of seeing Qatar offer the Spanish coach a contract…
