Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has emerged one of two top candidates to replace Unai Emery at Paris Saint Germain next summer.
Emery has been tipped to be leave the club next summer after PSG secured some stellar and mammoth deals last summer. The word from France is Emery lacks the clout and tactical ability to house the top talents PSG are bringing in at the club.
Failure to win the Champions League was always going to be the last straw for the owners and with the French giants exit in the competition in the round of 16 to Real Madrid, Emery’s job was under huge threat.
The former Sevilla manager is under immense pressure, he is sure to part ways with the club after this season ends and French journalist Matt Spiro reports Conte and Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino are high on PSG’s list of replacement options.

Conte himself is under pressure at Chelsea having failed to guide them to a successful title defense as the Blues lie fifth after match day 29. He is also expected to part ways with the club in the summer.
