PSG Sporting Director Leonardo has revealed Mauricio Pochettino will not be leaving the club amid reports linking him with an exit.
Pochettino has been linked with a move to Manchester United following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but Leonard insists the Argentine will remain with the French Ligue 1 giants.
“We do not want Pochettino to leave,” Leonardo told AFP.
“He never asked to leave and no club contacted us in relation to him”.
Recent reports claim that Les Parisiens are linked with former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane but Leonardo has denied the rumors.
“We respect Zinedine Zidane a lot, both as a player and coach, but I tell you very clearly that there has been no contact. No meeting.”
Ralf Rangnick is now expected to be appointed as the United interim boss until the end of the season, meaning Poch’s move could happen in the summer.
