Paris Saint-Germain chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi remains adamant that their main objective is to win the Champions League and has suggested that Unai Emery may be replaced at the end of the season

The Parisians sealed the Ligue 1 title on Sunday in dominant fashion with a convincing 7-1 win over nearest challengers AS Monaco at the Parc Des Princes stadium.

While pleased to have seen PSG secure their seventh Ligue 1 title, Al-Khelaifi remained adamant that the Champions League remains the main target. But, while conceding that Emery’s future may be in doubt, the Qatari did deny reports that Thomas Tuchel is being lined up to replace the Spaniard.

“When we have signed a contract with somebody, we will make an announcement,” said Al-Khelaifi to Canal+ (via ESPN).

“For the moment, nothing has been done — nothing has been signed.

“Currently, we have a coach. We won 7-1 with him and he has a contract until the end of the season.

“We have done a lot of positive things this season. We are champion for the seventh time, the fifth for me. It’s really something beautiful, thank you to everyone. Of course, everyone knows, our big goal is the Champions League. But today we are very proud and happy with this title.”

Javier Pastore, who has been a part of all five of Al-Khelaifi’s Ligue 1 titles, also hinted that this may be his last one with PSG.

“Honestly, I do not know — I no longer count,” said the 28 year-old.

“I will do that when I leave. We will see what happens.”

“Honestly, I do not know. We still need to speak with the club. It is normal after having spent many years at the club. The club has huge ambitions and is looking for new players, big talents. I am calm and just trying to do my best.”
