Paris Saint-Germain ended the season with a 5-0 win over Metz, but attention quickly turned to issues off the pitch.

Along with the future of Pochettino and Zidane, the controversial contract of Kylian Mbappe has also attracted attention at the French club.

Speaking of his future after the win over Metz, Pochettino is reported as saying: “I plan to rest for a few days and then resume contact with the club and work on next season.”

This comes after weeks of speculation about his future following on from PSG’s latest Champions League collapse.

The ex-Spurs gaffer has also been linked to the now vacant position at Dortmund.

Meanwhile, reports are emerging that Zidane will not be taking over at PSG regardless of what happens with Pochettino.

The club will be looking in a different direction, according to Get Football News France, with the former Real Madrid boss not in contention.

There is also upheaval at the top of the club with director Leonardo Araujo set to leave PSG, according to reports.


Former Lille sporting director Luis Campos is now reported as the favourite to replace him.

Whoever is in charge of the Paris-based club next season will have Mbappe at the helm after he signed a mega-deal at the club, leaving Real Madrid shocked.

The 23-year-old superstar had been linked with a move to the Bernabeu for months.

But his decision to stay at PSG appears to have angered some Madrid players, not least Karim Benzema.
