While the signing of Zinedine Zidane seemed certain on Friday, PSG must once again make up their minds. Unless there is an unlikely turnaround, the club from the capital will not have been able to convince the French technician.
Failed again! Mentioned for many months if not years, the arrival of Zinedine Zidane at PSG will still have to wait. Friday, the signature of the 98 world champion seemed acquired. An agreement in principle was announced and only a few details remained to be settled according to several Spanish media but also Europe 1 or RMC Sport. However, the breath quickly died down.

Zidane’s third refusal
Historical agent of the native of Marseille, Alain Migliaccio has indeed dismantled the rumor. ” All these rumors circulating are unfounded. To date, I am the only person admitted to represent and advise Zinedine Zidane. Neither Zinedine Zidane nor I have been contacted directly by the PSG owner “, he thus affirmed, adding: “ I also strongly doubt that the Emir of Qatar is used to going through social networks or the media to manage his affairs and make crucial decisions concerning the future of PSG. I’m not even sure he’s really interested in the arrival of Zinedine Zidane. According to AS, PSG did try to convince Zinedine Zidane to succeed Mauricio Pochettino on the Parisian bench, but for the third time in a few months, the former playmaker said no to the capital club.
PSG used by Zidane?
And according to the Parisian journalist Dominique Severac, the rumor launched on Friday was not the result of chance. Zinedine Zidane would indeed have used PSG to serve his personal purposes. ” It’s called fake news he asserted. Everything is false. On the other hand, there is the will, we say ‘the Zidane clan’, to let the French Football Federation know something. I’m not saying Zidane is involved, I’m saying it’s his entourage, his clan. The idea is to say ‘I missed a great project called PSG which is one of the biggest sports franchises in the world where there is Kylian Mbappé one of the sexiest and most formidable players in the world , so please, in six months and there will be the World Cup and it will end on December 18, whatever the result, give me the Blues because I refused the PSG to have the France team.»
A default choice
Zinedine Zidane’s refusal sounds like a terrible snub for PSG and more particularly for the Qatari owners, who had made it their top priority. Xavi and Pep Guardiola unavailable, the champions of France will probably have to settle for Christophe Galtier, which will not displease Luis Campos, the new Parisian sports adviser, who has made him his number one option. But the disappointment will be no less terrible for Qatari owners.
