Mauricio Pochettino could be set for a spectacular return to Tottenham Hotspur, after the PSG boss reportedly told the Ligue 1 side he wants to go back to his former club.
Pochettino was sacked by Spurs in November 2019, just months after taking the club to their first Champions League final, and replaced by Jose Mourinho.
The former Southampton boss was appointed PSG manager in January this year, returning to the club he represented on the pitch for three years, but things haven't gone well for Pochettino or Spurs since.
Whilst PSG failed to win Ligue 1, after Lille secured the title on the final day, Spurs sacked Mourinho and finished seventh, qualifying only for the Europa Conference League, and 'Poch' could now return to north London to replace the man who replaced him.
According to the Athletic, Spurs have held to talks with the 49-year-old about a possible return and he is interested in coming back to north London.
French outlet TF1 confirm the news, claiming that the manager 'wants' the return from Paris, although it's believed PSG currently have no interest in letting him go.
The Argentine still has one year left on his contract at the Parc des Princes and the club would rather avoid another season of upheaval, having recently sacked Thomas Tuchel.
That would mean Pochettino having to hand in his resignation at the club and Spurs would likely have to buy out the final year of his contract.
Despite his failure to win the league, or the Champions League, the PSG boss did win the Coupe de France and beat Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the Champions League, before losing to Manchester City in the semi finals.
Daniel Levy still has a good relationship with the Argentine, despite sacking him, and the Premier League chairman needs some much needed relationship building with the fans.
The club's performance on the pitch mixed with the fall out from the European Super League debacle has not made him popular, and he also has to battle to keep Harry Kane at the club.
If Pochettino doesn't move to Spurs then Erik ten Hag, Roberto Martinez, Ralf Rangnick and Graham Potter remain on their wanted list.
PSG on the other hand could turn to Antonio Conte or Zinedine Zidane, with the Inter Milan and Real Madrid bosses both leaving their clubs.
