Zinedine Zidane’s agent has criticized an “unfounded” report claiming the French legend has agreed to become Paris Saint-Germain’s new manager.
The world champion is widely expected to replace Mauricio Pochettino at the Parc de Princes this summer, with the Argentine’s future in the French capital in doubt since the club’s miserable Champions League collapse against Real in March.
RMC Sport and reports in Spain claim that a deal has been finalized between PSG and Zidane, with the club officially confirming their new football agent in Luis Campos today.
However, Zidane’s agent Alain Migliaccio insists there has been no contact with the French champions.
“All of these rumors are unfounded. At the moment I’m the only person who can represent Zinedine Zidane. Neither Zidane nor I have been contacted directly by the PSG owner,” Migliaccio said L’Equipe.
Big changes are afoot at PSG this summer, with Campos’ arrival set to trigger a roster reshuffle.
Mauro Icardi, Idrissa Gueye, Danilo Pereira, Keylor Navas and Julian Draxler are among those who could leave while Neymar was reportedly available for a transfer.
Paul Pogba, meanwhile, has been heavily linked with a move when he leaves Manchester United at the end of the month.
However, this step is currently considered unlikely.
