The Qatari owner of Paris Saint-Germain, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, wants to replace Laurent Blanc with Diego Simeone who arrived at Vicente Calderon in December 2011, according to reports.

Blanc is still undefeated after 12 Ligue 1 matches, but the club have been passed by Olympique Marseille by a four-point difference. The Parisians and especially thier owner, will not settle for second place and that is why there could be an exchange of managers soon. 


The Argentinian expert previously led five clubs, including Serie A members Catania. Those were all short-term menagerial periods for Simeone who finally managed to successfully apply his tactics in Madrid. Even the Arsenal gaffer, Wenger, was a subject of Parisian rumours for a short period. 


But if you think about it, it's not about the managers really. This club's players could do well under any manager with so many big names at the Park of the Princes. Zlatan Ibrahimović, Thiago Silva, Edinson Cavani, Lucas Moura and many others are the reason for PSG dominance.

So, will the king of Atletico go for money and start managing the French side? He was linked with the club once before in April and the return of rumours might just be groundbraking for Atletico and Paris fans.
