Paris Saint-Germain are considering Antonio Conte and Andre Villas-Boas as potential summer replacements for Unai Emery and the prefer those options over Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho may not be an option anyways, as he has shot down speculation that he would be exiting his post at Manchester United.
Emery’s future will only be decided based on what happens in the Champions League, leaving a lot of this speculation as that; speculation.
Chelsea boss Conte and former Blues and Tottenham coach Villas-Boas are currently the leading candidates, with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho also among the contenders.
Villas-Boas cited his “good relationship with the PSG management” in a recent interview with The Times but mentioned that their most recent communication was “not this year” while noting that, given how his time with Spurs ended in December 2013, things could have been different.
“The day I turned down PSG [summer 2013], I was 100 metres from the place where the Tottenham management was staying. All the days previous to that I was never called in, never given a word of support or trust, never spoken to.
“I made the decision to stay because I loved the club and I believed the club could get better with the arrival of Franco Baldini [technical director].
“In the end it was a mess and the decision to part company was best for everyone.”
