When Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo returned to Paris last summer, many assumed that current manager Thomas Tuchel was on the hot seat.
It seemed as though the German manager had one foot out of the door after the first-leg loss to Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League this season.
However, after a bounce-back return win at the Parc des Princes, which now sees Les Parisiens in the quarter-finals, it looks as though Tuchel might stick around another season.
Nonetheless, with Leonardo not being the person who hired him, Tuchel will continue to look over his shoulder as a potential replacement could be brought in at any time.
One name that will jump at the opportunity to manage PSG is the former manager of Juventus FC, Massimiliano Allegri.
The 52-year-old’s priority is to coach in Serie A due to family concerns, but according to Gazzetta dello Sport (via Culture PSG), the capital club is Allegri’s favorite destination abroad.
With the Italian manager’s fascination with the attackers on the PSG squad, his intriguing attitude towards the French football culture and his ties to Serie A will automatically attract Leonardo.
