Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly on the verge of announcing that Thomas Tuchel will be their next manager.
The former Borussia Dortmund coach will be unveiled as Unai Emery’s successor in July, according to ESPN.
The French giants are said to have considered big-name coaches including Antonio Conte, Massimiliano Allegri, Carlo Ancelotti and Luis Enrique for the position before approaching the German.
Emery is on course to complete a domestic treble at PSG, having wrapped up the League Cup with a 3-0 win over Monaco last month, but his failure to compete against European football’s giants in the Champions League has cost him his job.
Tuchel’s former club Dortmund, meanwhile, are on course for a top-four Bundesliga finish this season.
