Last summer, Zinedine Zidane refused PSG because he dreamed of the French team. With the extension of Didier Deschamps, the plans of the former Real Madrid coach are upset and Paris could take advantage of it.
Favorite to the succession of Didier Deschamps in the French team, Zinedine Zidane followed with the greatest attention the negotiations with the French Football Federation after the final of the World Cup between the Blues and Argentina. Didier Deschamps could have left through the front door, after a world title and a final. But the historic coach of the Blues has chosen to extend, and Noël Le Graët has granted him a very long lease, until June 2026. Zinedine Zidane is therefore once again on the coaching market, a boon for Paris Saint -Germain, who dreamed of the former manager of Real Madrid last summer, before finally falling back on Christophe Galtier even if according to Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, the former coach of OGC Nice has always been the first choice of PSG.
Zidane can be convinced by PSG
The extension of Didier Deschamps at the head of the Blues changes everything for Zinedine Zidane but also for PSG, who could be tempted by a new assault this summer with the aim of convincing the 1998 world champion to take charge of the professional team. . According to information from L’Equipe, Paris Saint-Germain is one of the few clubs likely to interest Zinedine Zidane, in the same way as Real Madrid and Juventus Turin, while the Premier League is not a championship. who interests him, especially because he does not speak English. Zinedine Zidane wants to take his time, but an offer from PSG could make him think… on a few conditions, however. The national daily says that “the Parisian track remains to be followed” because the Emir of Qatar “has always made it his dream”.
A sweep in the workforce is necessary to convince him
Monaco, Benfica round trip, Marseille, Lens, Rennes
Really a great season offered by the PSG of Galtier. Between the recent porridge against the 19th and 20th in L1 and the big tests never passed, it’s great don’t worry at 17 days from Bayern.

To convince Zinedine Zidane to join PSG’s QSI project, on the other hand, it will take a good number of changes within the club. “PSG will have to make a makeover and facelift to give the winner of the 2002 Champions League – as a player – the means to win. This is the only goal of “Zizou” if he rebounds on a bench in 2023 “ explains L’Equipe, for whom Zinedine Zidane is not closed to an adventure at Paris Saint-Germain, provided he is the number one decision maker on a certain number of subjects. We think for example of the transfer window, which he managed alone with Florentino Pérez at Real Madrid when he was the strong man of the club. The presence of Luis Campos could therefore be a brake on his arrival, for example. Beyond the management, the workforce will have to be radically changed to attract Zinedine Zidane, who does not imagine being at the head of a team composed, for example, of Neymar and Messi in addition to Kylian Mbappé. PSG will therefore have to make the right choices if they want to attract “Zizou” this summer.
