Paris Saint Germain- As former Monaco adviser Luis Campos prepares to replace outgoing director Leonardo, PSG ‘to finalize the resignation of boss Mauricio Pochettino in the coming days.’
Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, is expected to be fired in the coming days.
In France, the former Tottenham manager has one year left on his contract, and Luis Campos, a former AS Monaco advisor, is likely to succeed Leonardo as director. Pochettino, on the other hand, has recently expressed his intention to remain at the Parisians.

As they continue to make changes, Paris Saint-Germain is said to be finalizing the termination of Mauricio Pochettino and announcing the resignation of director of Leonardo.
The former Tottenham manager has a contract with the French club until the end of next season, but speculation over his future has been building for months, following the French giants’ humiliating Champions League departure.
Despite winning the Ligue 1 title, it has been reported that PSG will make an official decision on the Argentine’s future at the club after just one more meeting.

These assertions were made by Fabrizio Romano, a well-known football transfer specialist, who also indicated that Luis Campos, the former sports consultant of AS Monaco and Lille OSC, will join PSG to replace departed Leonardo.

Pochettino, on the other hand, recently stated that the club’s issues will ‘motivate any coach.’
‘Before I indicated [that I want to stay] 100 % here,’ the 50-year-old told Spanish radio show ‘El Partidazo de COPE.’
‘Today, I say 100% here [as well].’ My contract is up for renewal in a year. The obstacles are there, and any coach will be motivated by them.
‘Of course, I want to continue indefinitely.’ PSG is a club with a lot of ambition. Because of the public’s ambition, the Champions League [elimination] is the worst letdown.’
Pochettino has shown a wish to remain with PSG.
It was also recently claimed that star striker Kylian Mbappe wants 14 players, including manager Mauricio Pochettino and fellow forward Neymar, to quit the French side in a mass exodus this summer.
The 23-year-old recently pledged his future to the club by rejecting Real Madrid to sign a new three-year contract with the French giants worth £650,000 a week.
The Frenchman is thought to have been handed additional influence behind the scenes as part of the lucrative arrangement, and he could be prepared to start pulling the strings in the transfer window, something he now denies.

The forward, on the other hand, has resorted to Twitter to refute allegations that he is asking for a mass exodus.
