Paris Saint-Germain have expressed the desire to hire Tottenham’s managerial director Fabio Paratici in the summer.
According to Tutto Mercato Web, Paris Saint-Germain have set their sights on Fabio Paratici. The Parisian juggernaut have explored the possibility of signing the Tottenham sporting director, who is currently working with Daniel Levy and Antonio Conte, spearheading the Spurs project.
PSG’s interest in Paratici comes just a day after the club’s shocking elimination from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid. Karim Benzema produced a performance for the ages, scoring a second-half hat-trick to end PSG’s hopes of lifting the coveted trophy this season.
The early exit from the Champions League has compelled President Nasser Al-Khelaifi to plan a potential overhaul, including the coach Mauricio Pochettino and sporting director Leonardo.
Throughout the season, there have been many reports indicating Leonardo’s broken relationship with some of the players, including Kylian Mbappe. The Brazilian has also struggled in picking the right players in the market, with the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum finding it difficult to make an immediate impact in France.
It could lead to his potential departure at the end of the season, with PSG setting their sights on Fabio Paratici as an ideal replacement. Currently employed by Tottenham, the Italian is considered as one of the sharpest brains in European football and had an integral role in Juventus’ unrivalled dominance over Italian football.
Even at Tottenham, Paratici has had a decent start, notably playing a part in convincing Harry Kane to stay at the club another year, while bringing in useful players such as Dejan Kulusevski. Although the Italian has failed to escape the ire of his compatriot Antonio Conte, his overall progression has left the PSG camp impressed.
In addition to Paratici, PSG are also said to be interested in bringing in Conte as the desired replacement for Mauricio Pochettino. Les Parisiens are hoping that their vast knowledge of European football could come in handy in not only managing the current superstars, but also building a proper structure rather than just signing top players across Europe.
