Real Madrid are set to join the race for Mauricio Pochettino, who’s expected to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season. The former Tottenham boss is under contract at the French giants until June 2023, however, it’s widely reported that this will be his final campaign in charge.
Pochettino has been in charge of PSG since January 2021 and it has been reported that Real, along with Spurs, failed in an attempt to land the Argentine last summer because PSG were unwilling to let him leave. However, that won’t put the Spanish giants off from trying again this summer with the club’s higher-ups understood to be keen to replace Ancelotti with Pochettino.
The report adds that Pochettino going to the Bernabeu could be key to Real Madrid signing Kylian Mbappe, with their close relationship viewed as the deciding factor in getting the French striker on board amid suggestions he was beginning to get cold feet over the move.
