Mauricio Pochettino Reportedly Signs Contract To Become New PSG Manager

Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly signed a contract to take over as the new manager of Paris Saint-Germain.

According to prominent Italian sports journalist, Fabrizio Romano on Twitter revealed that the ex-Tottenham boss put pen to paper on Sunday.

It comes after former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel reached an agreement with the club to leave with immediate effect, a move that will cost them £5.4m. 

Tuchel was revealed to have been sacked on Wednesday night, just hours after overseeing PSG's 4-0 win over Racing Strasbourg. 

PSG's sporting director Leonardo sacked the 47-year-old after the club's emphatic win at the Parc des Princes, which came four months after Tuchel led the Parisian outfit to the Champions League final.

Pochettino has been without a club since parting company with Tottenham last year and will now return to the club where he featured as a player. 

The Argentine was linked with the other top managerial positions across the continent with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United all being linked with the 48-year-old in the past year.
