Paris Sant Germain want Chelsea’s Antonio Conte as replacement for Unai Emery, who is believed to be on his way out of the French giants. L’Equipe reports that the Qatari owners of the French side want a change in management since the club has failed to mount any serious title challenge in this season’s Champions League. This has led the club to pick Conte as the man that can lead the Ligue 1 leaers to the place they really want to be.
Reports claim the club has already had talks with Conte’s brother, Gianluca and Federico Pastorello, his agent will fly to Paris next Tuesday for further talks. However, Conte is said to divide opinion in France with his tactical awareness not in doubt but his passion on the sidelines a possible hindrance. Also raising doubts is his potential relationship with Neymar the world’s most expensive player.
L’Equipe reports that Conte would be interested in taking charge at the Parc des Princes for both monetary and competitive reasons. He believes he could mould a side capable of winning Europe’s top prize there.
