Nasser Al-Khelaïfi wants to strengthen the Paris Saint-Germain organizational chart and could soon be repaired for a trace of the most prestigious.

Leonardo’s return is not all rosy. The sporting director has returned to Paris Saint-Germain after a break as a coach at Antalyaspor and a return to AC Milan. His first transfer window was mixed with Idrissa Gueye or Abdou Diallo still not unanimous a year later. There was Keylor Navas, of course, and then to a lesser extent Mauro Icardi, but that’s not enough for a club like PSG. In the following season in particular, Leonardo was unable to resolve certain sensitive issues, such as those associated with Adil Aouchiche or Tanguy Kouassi … not to mention the internal war that broke out with Thomas Tuchel, an election of Doha ! “They don’t like Doha at all,” said L’Équipe last September. “There shouldn’t be any noise with Qatar. (…) Doha is not at all satisfied with the management of the transmission window. “Should we therefore fear a possible departure from Leonardo?

Al-Khelaïfi tried by Fabio Paratici

It seems that Nasser Al-Khelaïfi has already taken the lead! Indeed, Tuttosport has stated that the President of Paris Saint-Germain would particularly appreciate Fabio Paratici. The 48-year-old is making a name for himself in the football world. After managing recruiting at Sampdoria, he joined Juventus in 2010 and, along with Giuseppe Marotta, is considered one of the architects of the rebirth of the old lady. His strokes are well known, from Andrea Pirlo to Paul Pogba passing Adrien Rabiot … all acquired without paying a single cent in transfer compensation! He’s the sporting director at one of the biggest clubs in the world and while the Italian press doesn’t say so, his arrival would clearly be aimed at replacing Leonardo. We don’t see any of them agree to work together.

Paratici soon confirmed by Juventus?

Does Leonardo really have to worry? Not really. This Monday, Il Corriere dello Sport declares that Fabio Paratici is also being courted by AS Roma, which will be fully reconstructed after the change of ownership. According to the daily information, a departure of Paratici from Juventus would be unlikely for the time being. The relationship between the sports director, President Andrea Agnelli and Vice-President Pavel Nedved is very close and his duet with Federico Cherubini, sports coordinator, is appreciated. Il Corriere therefore suggests that there is a good chance Paratici will be confirmed in his post on October 15 during Juventus’ balance sheet meeting with investors. Otherwise, Leonardo could get a cold sweat.
