PSG are pondering a move for former Inter Milan and Man City manager Roberto Mancini to replace current boss Unai Emery in the French capital, according to reports in Le Parisien.
The Spaniard has found it hard since taking over at the Parc des Princes at the start of the season, with the Ligue 1 champions unusually struggling for form both at home and in the Champions League.
Things have not been going well for PSG in recent weeks, with a 3-0 defeat at Montpellier in Ligue 1 follwed by a surprising 2-2 Champions league draw with Ludogorets costing them top spot in their group.
PSG did at least manage to salvage a 2-2 draw against Nice on Sunday, when a defeat could have had former Sevilla boss Emery in even bigger trouble.
The draw with Nice leaves PSG trailing them in the French Ligue 1 table though, and matters were already bad enough for the team to boycott the media ahead of the game as a reaction to the negative coverage os their struggles.
Roberto Mancini was linked with a move to Paris back in May, when he rubbished those reports as ‘a hoax’, but now those reports have resurfaced again.
Le Parisien reports that plans are already in place to bring in Mancini if results get much worse and the club’s hierarchy decide to make a switch, with the Italian readily available at short notice.
