After having transferred their best player, PSG are preparing another hit for Ligue 1 rivals, AS Monaco.
Even though he has been reconfirmed as the manager of PSG, despite losing the Ligue 1 title, Unai Emery could leave the club next summer, especially if he does not deliver the title in France and does not get closer to the winning of the Champions League trophy.
According to le10sport.com, PSG’s sports director, Antero Henrique, wants to replace the Spanish manager with none other than Monaco’s manager, Leonardo Jardim.
If these rumours were to become reality, it would be the second big hit Monaco takes from PSG, after the transfer of Kylian Mbappe this summer. The young French striker arrived at Parc des Princes in a loan deal, with an obligation from PSG to pay €180m next summer, after the player forced the move.
According to the information presented by the quoted source, PSG will have to pay €15m if they want to install Leonardo Jardim as their new manager.
Rumours about possible replacements for Unai Emery have also been circulating last summer, at the time of the appointing of Antero Henrique. It was then suggested that the ex-Porto official had been in contact with Sporting’s manager, Jorge Jesus, but the rumours were not confirmed.
