Conte gives PSG conditions to replace Pochettino as the club’s manager

Antonio Conte has reportedly given conditions to Paris Saint-Germain board, should he to takeover from from Mauricio Pochettino as the club manager, Newspremises has gathered.

Pochettino is expected to leave the Ligue 1 side despite securing the title on Saturday April 23, following their 1-1 draw with Lens.

Despite helping the French giants to win the league title, Pochettino and his players have come under intense scrutiny since their exit from the Champions League in the last-16.

The Argentine has struggled to win over the fans and failed to progress past the last 16 of the Champions League.

Although there are speculations that PSG have made Zinedine Zidane their preferred candidate to replace Pochettino, Conte has also offered his services to the club.

Conte’s contract with the Premier League club only lasts until 2023.

According to French radio station RMC Sport, Conte would be very interested in taking over at the Parc des Princes, but he has a list of very demanding conditions PSG must agree to.

The former Inter Milan boss is demanding almost double his wages to a whopping €30million (£25.2m) per year. This will make his the second highest-paid manager in the world behind Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone.

Conte also wants to bring his entire coaching staff with him and that includes picking his own sporting director.

He would want more control over transfers than any of the club’s previous managers over the past decade.
