Paris Saint-Germain could target Mourinho

Paris St Germain owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi could turn to Jose Mourinho as a replacement for Laurent Blanc this summer, following their poor showing in the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City.

The French side wrapped up the Ligue 1 title as early as March, but five years after buying the club, the Qatari hierarchy expected a better showing in Europe this season.

Mourinho, who won the treble with Inter in 2010, has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United to replace former mentor Louis van Gaal, or even a return to Real Madrid, but PSG may feel someone of his stature is needed to take the club where they want to go.

A sensational move to Arsenal has even been mooted, but joining PSG would ensure Mourinho participates in the Champions League, something far from certain at both English clubs right now.

The Portuguese coach has achieved his goal of winning league titles in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain, and could see the French league as another to add to his collection.
