Report: Leonardo Met with FC Porto Boss Over PSG Managerial Job

Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino appears to be in his final days at the helm of the capital club. If reports are accurate, the Argentine will be sacked and over the last few weeks plenty of names have surfaced to take over his role.

The first choice is Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, but the French tactician could be waiting for the France national team job to become available. As a result, the Ligue 1 side might have to pivot to Plan B, which includes names like Antonio Conte, Thiago Motta, Marcelo Gallardo, etc. 

Nonetheless, Foot Mercato has the latest name in connection to this soon-to-be-open position as sporting director Leonardo recently met with FC Porto tactician Sérgio Conceição. 

The 47-year-old has won the league three times since taking over as the manager for the Portuguese giants in 2017. He also made it to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League last year, losing 2-1 on aggregate to Chelsea. 

Conceição is under contract with Porto until 2024 and reportedly has a release clause of €10-million.
