Paris Saint-Germain is working to bring Zinedine Zidane to the club.
His availability has already alerted decision makers at PSG.
The Ligue 1 giants have been trying to retain Mauricio Pochettino, who is eager to return to Tottenham Hotspur.
While he doesn’t make the Argentine walk out the door, Pochettino won’t find as many protests now if Spurs sign plans to bring him back to London.
A move for Zizou is already being discussed in Qatar, where PSG owners are planning the new season, and initial contact is being considered.
Zidane’s longtime agent and confidant Alain Migliaccio has made it clear to Zizou that moving to PSG would be positive and tried to convince him to make the switch a year ago.
