While the future of Mauricio Pochettino appears more and more uncertain, PSG does seem to be preparing big changes.
The more the weeks – and especially the matches – go by, the more Mauricio Pochettino seems threatened. The fault not only with the services of the PSG always insufficient but also with the results which are from now on to match. Evidenced by the slap received at Manchester City in the Champions League (2-1) or the two draws conceded in a row in Ligue 1 against Nice (0-0) and Lens (1-1). The statistics are also terrible for the Argentine technician: the capital club has not won any of its four matches against the Top 5 teams.

The vagueness surrounding the future of the former defender is all the more important as the PSG would be in discussions with Zinédine Zidane for several weeks. It would even be time for negotiations, thus recently assured The Parisian. But according to La Cadena Ser, the departure of Mauricio Pochettino would not be the only one considered by the top Parisian leaders.
According to Spanish radio, Leonardo could follow. Returning to PSG in the summer of 2019, the Brazilian did not fully convince in Doha and the 1998 world champion would not adapt well to his bulky presence …. The Parisian leaders would thus already be in advanced contacts with Ramon Planes, the former technical secretary of FC Barcelona, who left the Catalan club only a few weeks ago, following the arrival of Xavi. The Reds and Blues would not be the only ones to take an interest in the former Blaugrana, however, as Valencia and Newcastle would also make him look soft. But for now, his priority would clearly go to the club in the capital.
