PSG Eye Up Moves For Premier League Pair For Manager

Being a manager of one of the top clubs in the world comes with an inevitable time limit, no matter how well you're doing. PSG are already eyeing up Unai Emery's replacement despite being top of the league.

Teams and fans would love their very own Sir Alex Ferguson, both in terms of his success and his longevity, but it's just not likely these days, managers move on far more quickly than they ever did previously.

In a lot of clubs success doesn't mean a manager will get to stick around much for the season after, think Real Madrid, Chelsea and even Leicester City of recent times.

Last season Unai Emery was lucky to survive the sack at PSG after the French club were beaten to the league title by Monaco but even with the team leading the title race this term there's talk that he'll lose his job.

And the Mirror report that the Parisians are eyeing up two Premier League bosses for their next manager. The feuding Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho are both in the PSG crosshairs to be the next manager.

Mourinho's contract at Old Trafford runs until 2019 and, despite signing a new deal just last year, Conte also only has about 18 months left on his deal at Stamford Bridge.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager did praise PSG earlier this season but he also recently committed himself to the Red Devils and there has been talk of extending his deal past 2020.

Conte has also had questions about his future brought up. The former Italy manager is said to be frustrated at the Blues' spending and a move back to his home country, although not as national manager has been mooted.

PSG should expect to win Ligue 1 this season and so that will hardly affect Emery's future at the club. However their run in Europe could decide his future.

The club's aim is to be a major player in the Champions League and that thinking will have only been intensified this season after the signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

There's no doubt the oil rich club would see Mourinho or Conte as the high profile names to take them to the next level in the continent's biggest competition.
