-Ikenna Okafor

Paris Saint-Germain are interested in making Jose Mourinho their next manager as they prepare to cut ties with Mauricio Pochettino, according to reports.

The Ligue 1 champions have long had plans to offload Pochettino at the end of the season and they had been keen to replace him with Antonio Conte, who has since reaffirmed his commitment to Tottenham.

As well as a new manager, PSG are also closing in on hiring Luis Campos as their new sporting director, and sources have confirmed that the former Lille and Monaco chief is looking at his options as he prepares to cut ties with Pochettino.

Intermediaries working on behalf of PSG have reached out to Mourinho to gauge his interest in taking the job, with the Ligue 1 side intrigued by the prospect of working with the Roma manager.

Mourinho is known to be close with Campos, who worked under him at Real Madrid, and the boss even failed in an attempt to bring his fellow Portugal national to Manchester United earlier in his career.

Indirect contact has been made with Mourinho’s camp over a possible move to Paris, but multiple sources have confirmed to 90min that the former United and Chelsea boss is infatuated with life in Rome.
