PSG chiefs want to appoint a new boss who they believe will give them the best opportunity of finally winning the Champions League – a competition Mourinho has a rich history with.

Whether Mourinho emerges as the French club’s first-choice target remains to be seen. Zinedine Zidane is believed to be the preferred option of the PSG hierarchy.

But the former Real Madrid boss is believed to have targeted replacing Didier Deschamps as manager of the France national team after the World Cup.

That could open the door to Mourinho making a shock move to the French capital.

Mourinho is coming off a successful season at Roma, where he led them to sixth in Serie A and winning the inaugural Europa Conference League.

But the prospect of once again taking charge at one of European football’s elite clubs could tempt Mourinho into leaving Rome.

PSG are reportedly finalising the sacking of Pochettino and are ready to announce the departure of director of Leonardo, as they begin to make changes.

The former Tottenham boss is under contract with the French outfit until the end of next season, but speculation surrounding his future has been mounting for months.
