Reports would indicate that Luis Enrique is the next manager for Paris Saint-Germain. However, the Spanish boss wasn’t Option A for the capital club, as various reports linked Julian Nagelsmann to the gig.
Nonetheless, Nagelsmann and PSG left the negotiating table, making the French giants look at other options. CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs shared details as to why the German manager isn’t coming to the 2022-23 Ligue 1 champions.
Jacobs reported on Sunday, citing sources, that it was PSG who ended the Nagelsmann talks after feeling he didn’t engage in the hiring process. Furthermore, Jacobs notes that it was this exact reason a potential hiring at Chelsea didn’t occur either.
Interestingly, sources indicate it was PSG who ended the Julian Nagelsmann talks after feeling he didn't engage in the hiring process (same as with #CFC) or buy into the club's new youth-led model. Nagelsmann side dispute this calling it a "mutual" decision not to proceed. https://t.co/SPLxxxw1rV

Chelsea, like PSG, moved on to another option: Mauricio Pochettino. Additionally, there was another reason why PSG opted to walk away from Nagelsmann. He didn’t buy into the club’s new youth-led model.
If Enrique is the manager coming to Paris, he will be signing on for two years. Also, it was the Spanish manager’s charisma, experience and style of play that appeals to PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and sporting advisor Luis Campos.
