Yahoo Sport Exclusive: PSG in talks with Simeone over manager's job

Even though the Ligue 1 season has just finished, manouevering has already begun for next season at Paris Saint-Germain. In an interview with Le Parisien on Friday, PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi talks about necessary change. "If we continue like this, we will not get there (to win the Champions League). This is the time to change," he said. According to him, the change will "begin a new cycle" at the French giants.

According to information Yahoo gleaned from a source in Qatar, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has just begun negotiations with the coach of Atlético Madrid Diego Simeone. The chairman of PSG took the lead on this issue and is personally managing the discussions.
