Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho ‘wanted by PSG’ as Unai Emery faces axe at end of season

Ligue 1 giants are desperate to win Champions League and want manager who knows how to win Europe's No 1 competition

Jose Mourinho is a target for Paris Saint-Germain, as they prepare to bring in a new manager this summer, according to reports.

The Ligue 1 giants are expected to show Unai Emery the door at the end of the season following their defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League last-16.

Jose Mourinho is in PSG’s plans this summer with Unai Emery expected to leave


Antonio Conte, who is also likely to leave Chelsea in the summer, as well as out of work bosses Carlo Ancelotti and Thomas Tuchel appeared to be the frontrunners for the position.

But Corriere dello Sport report Mourinho is also in the French club’s plans.

The self-proclaimed Special One had been close to moving to the Parc des Princes following the sacking of Laurent Blanc in 2016.

However, he held out for the United job as PSG hired Unai Emery, on the back of his three successive Europa League victories with Sevilla.


In his first season, he failed to win the Ligue 1 title and the club reacted by breaking the world transfer record to sign Neymar for £198million.

But, for the second season running, PSG have been eliminated in the first knock-out phase of the Champions League and Emery is certain to leave in the summer.

Conte is still among the favourites for the position, while Tuchel and Ancelotti — who are also Chelsea targets — are in contention.

Mourinho is still expected to stay at United beyond the summer, but defeat in the FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham would see the pressure mount.
