Besides Mauricio Pochettino, Leonardo could also leave PSG to make way for monchiwhich could unlock a first big file.
PSG launched the big maneuvers for the arrival of Monchi
Like Argentine coach Mauricio Pochettino, Leonardo shouldn’t survive Paris Saint-Germain’s latest humiliation in the Champions League. The Qatari owners of the capital club would criticize the Brazilian sporting director for his inability to slim down a rhetorical and budget-consuming workforce, one of his main objectives since his return in July 2019. Determined to relaunch his project in the capital, Qatar would have looking for a replacement for Leonardo.
If the names ofArsène Wenger (FIFA) and Fabio Paratici (Tottenham) have been mentioned by the media, the favorite for the position would be named monchi. Great craftsman of the glorious decade of Sevilla FC, the Spanish leader would now be the main objective of Nasser Al-Khelaifi to give a completely different face to Paris Saint-Germain. The Parisian decision-makers have even already met the sports director of the Andalusian club, according to journalist Fabrice Hawkins.
“PSG got in touch with Monchi, the DS of Sevilla FC, with a view to a departure (which is not recorded) of Leonardo. The Spaniard is highly regarded in Doha. Monchi is not insensitive to the interest of Paris Saint-Germain even if he likes Sevilla”, explained the former RTL journalist on Twitter. After the failure of his adventure at AS Roma, monchi would still like to join a European Top 5 club to test their skills. The prospect of integrating the organization chart of Paris SG with a budget much higher than that which he has at Sevilla FC and which he saw at Roma, would seriously delight the former goalkeeper. Moreover, he will already be able to demonstrate his talents as an exceptional recruiter with the signing of an Argentine star.
PSG Mercato: Paulo Dybala, first signing of Monchi?
At the end of the contract in June, Paulo Dybala will leave Juventus Turin to join a new club. Announced all over Europe, the 28-year-old striker would be a priority for Paris Saint-Germain, in the fight with Inter Milan. According to information collected by the Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, the compatriot of Lionel Messi would demand a four-year contract and an annual salary of €10m to sign.
And while the Argentinian international would wait until the end of the season to make his decision concerning his future destination, monchi could try to convince Dybala to leave Serie A for PSG in order to participate in the first European success of the flagship club of the French championship. “Arsenal inquired about Paulo Dybala last week, but Inter (who have already met his agent in recent days) and PSG are still leading the race to sign him free. Atlético Madrid are also interested in Joya”, specifies Nicolo Schira on Twitter. In the wake of his arrival in the event of an agreement, Monchi could therefore quickly settle a first major file for the Red and Blue.
