Thomas Tuchel to take charge of PSG from next season

Thomas Tuchel to take charge of PSG from next season

Along with continuing PSG's dominance in France - Emery departs as a domestic treble victor - Tuchel will be under pressure to deliver Champions League success as one of the most highly touted coaching talents in Europe. "I do not want anything else for him".

"Everyone knows why I came here, what my objectives are".

But amid suggestions that Madrid would be willing to fund a transfer that would once again break the world transfer record in the coming months, Balague insists any move is far more likely in 12 months' time.

"I spend my whole life, every transfer window, talking about it".

PSG also signed Kylian Mbappe previous year, but France's hottest prospect could not help them reach the semi-finals, which was the team's goal this season. Everybody speaks about PSG and the league all over the world. He had surgery in Brazil in March and has resumed light training and ball work as he bids to be ready for the World Cup, which starts next month in Russian Federation.

"Thomas is one of the most competitive European coaches to have emerged at the highest level in recent years".

Neymar has been told he will stay "2000 per cent" by PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi.

"The Spanish media have been talking since October".

PSG wrapped up this season's Ligue 1 title with 5 games to spare. I have changed universe. Mbappe has netted 13 since joining from deposed champion Monaco.

Tuchel has been on a sabbatical since leaving Dortmund at the end of the 2016-17 season, having guided the club to DFB-Pokal glory and a third-placed finish in the Bundesliga.

Now with Chelsea, Hazard won it in 2009 and 2010 when with Lille.

Given that PSG's utter domination of French football is taken as a given these days (they've won three domestic trebles and one double in the past four years), we can only speculate that Tuchel's two-year deal contains a plethora of clauses pertaining to reaching and winning the Champions League final - such is the ownership's sole wanton desire.
