Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino is expecting to hold talks with president Nasser Al-Khelaifi to discuss his future at the club this summer.

The Argentine's side wrapped up the Ligue 1 title with four games to spare following a 1-1 draw with Lens but have suffered disappointment in other tournaments throughout the season.

Nice ended PSG's Coupe de France defence earlier this season, while the latest in a long line of Champions League capitulations came at the hands of Real Madrid in the last-16.

Les Parisiens claimed a 1-0 first-leg win on home soil before being sent packing with a 3-1 Bernabeu defeat, leading to intense speculation surrounding Pochettino's future in the hotseat.

Despite delivering the top-flight title back to the Parc des Princes, there has been a growing expectation that Pochettino's stint in the PSG hotseat will come to an end this summer.

The 50-year-old's contract at PSG does not expire until the end of next season, and he is still hopeful of staying on in the French capital for at least another 12 months.

"The club will do what they see fit, like last summer. For the moment I am still the coach, and I will also take part in that decision," Pochettino told the press, as quoted by Marca.

"Without a doubt, I should see the president in Qatar. I'm sure we will see each other. But to be clear, the planning of our meetings is always done by our superiors."

Pochettino has now taken charge of 83 games for the French champions since replacing Thomas Tuchel in January 2021, winning 55, drawing 13 and losing 15 so far.

The Argentine's short stint at PSG has also seen him claim the Coupe de France and Trophee des Champions crowns, and his side returned to winning ways with a 4-0 thumping of Montpellier HSC on Saturday.

Should PSG ultimately decide to relieve Pochettino of his duties, former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is still thought to be the frontrunner to take over in the capital.

The 49-year-old is believed to have been holding out for the France job, but French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet recently expressed his opinion that Zidane could end up taking the reins at PSG.

"Do you see me saying today: 'Is it Zidane who will replace Deschamps?' We'll see. Zidane might take on PSG. For the France team, you have to be free. But today, we are going to do everything to put Didier in the best conditions to win this World Cup," Le Graet told L'Equipe.

Antonio Conte was also linked with the PSG role, but the current Tottenham Hotspur manager was quick to shoot down such speculation as "fake news".

Meanwhile, the next career move of Kylian Mbappe remains a major talking point at PSG, and the attacker has now revealed that he has "almost" come to a decision on his future. body check tags ::
