Foot PSG – Al-Khelaïfi offers the keys to PSG to Zidane!

Behind the scenes, PSG are already preparing for the coming season and in the shadows, the staff of the Parisian club is trying to convince Zinedine Zidane.

Last summer, Paris Saint-Germain launched major maneuvers with the aim of recruiting Zidane Zidane, free of any contract since leaving Real Madrid. Pending a potential phone call from the French Football Federation to replace Didier Deschamps, “Zizou” did not follow up on PSG’s interest. This summer, the situation is different for the 1998 world champion after the extension of Didier Deschamps’ contract at the head of the French team until June 2026. Zidane wants to train again and the clubs likely to interest him count on the fingers of one hand: Real Madrid, Juventus Turin… and Paris SG. That’s good, the reigning French champion is still in the running.


According to information from the Daily Sport, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi recently met Zinedine Zidane discreetly to discuss a possible collaboration in the future. The least we can say is that the staff of Paris Saint-Germain is ready to do anything to convince Zinedine Zidane to join PSG. And for good reason, during their interview, Zidane and Al-Khelaïfi discussed what the role of the former Real Madrid coach would be if he signed for Paris. The president of the Ile-de-France club was very clear with “Zizou”, to whom he is ready to give full sporting powers. Indeed, QSI wants to offer the former attacking midfielder of the French team a role of expanded general manager, which would automatically lead to the departure of Christophe Galtier but also of Luis Campos, for whom a collaboration with a coach of Zinedine Zidane’s tempering would be difficult, if not impossible.

The PSG summer transfer window mentioned between Zidane and Al-Khelaifi

During their interview, Zinedine Zidane and Nasser Al-Khelaïfi mentioned the potential role of the 1998 world champion, but not only. There was also talk about building the squad for the upcoming season. By bringing in Zidane, PSG hopes to convince Kylian Mbappé to stay. And the latter could be accompanied by a pivot, which he has dreamed of for a long time in the French capital. Zidane and Al-Khelaïfi have agreed on the name of an accessible player whose complementarity with Mbappé is obvious: Dusan Vlahovic, who drags his spleen at Juventus Turin, who will probably not qualify for the League of Champions next season after the sanction of 15 penalty points which she was the target. A total upheaval in midfield was also mentioned by Zidane during his meeting with Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, with several departures and essential reinforcements to aim for victory in the Champions League.


While Christophe Galtier is currently in office and still in the running to achieve the Ligue 1, Coupe de France, Champions League treble, Paris Saint-Germain is therefore preparing its revolution behind the scenes. And if for the moment, Zinedine Zidane has not given the green light to join the reigning French champion next summer, the planets are more and more aligned, now that PSG no longer have to struggle. fierce competition from the French team. Thanks to Noël Le Graët, his XXL extension granted to Didier Deschamps, Paris Saint-Germain has a free field to recruit Zinedine Zidane. Unless Juventus Turin, which will be in full reconstruction next summer, manifests itself with the ex-Real Madrid coach. From then on, Zidane will have to make a choice and PSG will have a strong competitor facing him given the love that the former Juve attacking midfielder has for the Turin club.
