A Zinedine Zidane-Arsène Wenger duo at PSG next season?

According to the Foot Mercato portal, Zinedine Zidane remains PSG's priority target to replace Mauricio Pochettino as coach in the summer, but the Frenchman would not be a fan of sporting director Leonardo.

A couple of days ago it was reported that Mauricio Pochettino told those around him that he plans to leave PSG in the summer, a year before the end of his contract. Meanwhile, PSG officials tried to end their relationship even earlier, as they actively sought to replace the Argentine coach in January. 

PSG's Qatari owners would be willing to do anything to convince Zidane to join the club after it was reported that he turned down the opportunity to join as manager in recent weeks. 

Zidane is seen as the manager who will restore order to the locker room, and according to the quoted media, he will be offered a huge salary that far exceeds Pochettino's €8m net annual contract and even €12m net salary of Zidane in Madrid. 

The PSG hierarchy is also willing to offer Zidane wide sporting freedoms, so it seems difficult for Leonardo to work hand in hand with 'Zizou', who is reportedly not a fan of the Brazilian, and would prefer to work with Arsène Wenger. Foot Mercato reported last year that Wenger would also be interested in working with Zidane and could finally be convinced to join PSG after turning down many previous opportunities. 

It should be clarified that it is also very difficult for the PSG board to get rid of Leonardo only at the request of a potential next coach, since the Brazilian operates in many more areas than sports.
