Capello To Warm PSG's Bed For Wenger?

Reports suggest that Fabio Capello is set to become the new manager of PSG, after the French club failed to secure the services of Andre Villas-Boas.

PSG’s Qatari owners tried to lure Spurs boss AVB to the Parc des Princes last weekend, whispering sweet nothings about their ‘project’ into the ear of his agent.

But AVB has gone on record to say that he would like to enjoy a second season at the same club for the first time since he left Porto, and has therefore committed his future to White Hart Lane.

It is believed that he will be rewarded with ‘marquee signings’ by Spurs as a reward for his loyalty.

Capello has long been PSG’s failsafe option.

The Italian is contracted to the Russian Football Federation as coach of their national team for two more seasons, and he appears on the verge of leading them to qualification for the World Cup in Brazil next year.

But reports suggest that PSG have already activated the €3 million release clause in Capello’s contract, freeing him to move to Paris on a lucrative one-year deal.

The suggestion is that Capello could then return to Russia to take them to Brazil at the end of next season.

Meanwhile, if indeed Capello has been given the PSG job on a one-year contract, the rumours will strengthen that he is simply keeping the bed warm for PSG’s long-term crush, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Wenger remains contracted to the Gunners for one more season, and the London club hope he signs on for more time at the Emirates helm.

But PSG have already come knocking once. And their president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who enjoys a good relationship with Wenger, has seemingly set a long-term plan to land the Frenchman in motion.
