ZZ at PSG is no longer just a dream imagined by Parisian fans. Still unlikely a few weeks ago, the signing of Zinedine Zidane as coach of the capital club seems closer and closer. According to Mundo Deportivothe situation is very favourable, confirmed by RMC, Europe 1 and journalist Saber Desfarges, explaining that a “agreement in principle” was close to being found to put the 98 world champion on the Parisian bench. After the announcement of the arrival of Luis Campos as football adviser, the trend is indeed for a signing close to the Frenchman in the coming days.

Migliaccio denies any contact with PSG
According to the Spanish media, Paris Saint-Germain’s salary offer could not be more attractive, to the point of making the former Real Madrid coach the highest paid coach in the world. A meeting this Saturday would be on the program, in the presence of high-ranking leaders from Qatar. The soap opera seems close to a denouement, after several weeks of negotiation and pressure from all sides, including from the head of state Emmanuel Macron a few days ago. If the PSG has neither confirmed nor denied the information concerning an agreement with the French technician, a source close to the management of the club has however relativized with AFP that such an agreement was acquired.
Alain Migliaccio, the historic adviser of the 1998 Ballon d’Or, denied him any contact with PSG. “All these rumors circulating are unfounded. To date, I am the only person admitted to represent and advise Zinédine Zidane. Neither Zinedine Zidane nor I have been contacted directly by the PSG owner“, he announced to L’Equipe. Cadena Cope also reports a formal denial from his entourage. On the side of France Bleu Paris, we confirm the trend: no agreement in principle would have been found and “ZZ” did not travel to Qatar this week.

After the departure of Leonardo, leaving a greater margin on the control of sports management within PSG, as well as the extension of Kylian Mbappé’s contract until 2025, the major maneuvers are therefore indeed underway in Paris, where Mauricio Pochettino is currently still in post. According The Teamto separate from the Argentinian and his staff, under contract until 2023, would cost between 15 and 20 million euros for the champions of France.
A year without a bench
At 49, Zinédine Zidane has been without a bench for a season and his departure from Real Madrid with whom he won the Spanish championship twice and the Champions League three times, a trophy erected as the No. 1 goal for PSG leaders. Often linked to the France team in recent months, the former number 10 of the Blues, a native of Marseille, would return to the French championship, which he knew as a player from 1988 to 1996, in Cannes then Bordeaux.
Courted for a long time by the staff of PSG, he had until then always recalled the impossibility of signing in Paris as a Marseilles player. Without a doubt, a signing of Zidane in the capital would mark a real turning point in the Parisian off-season after the extension of Mbappé, which could also open the door to a transfer window which for the moment is slipping on important files, such as that leading to Aurélien Tchouaméni.
