On Saturday evening, Les Parisiens were held to a 1-1 draw at home against RC Lens. Despite the stalemate, PSG managed to clinch to this season's Ligue 1 title with the point they claimed from the match.

The French giants had relinquished their status as title holders when Lille pipped them to the top spot in the 2020/21 season, but the side from the capital has now reclaimed its throne as Ligue 1 champions.

Mauricio Pochettino, in the process, claimed his first league title as manager, but it may not be enough to keep the Argentine at the Parc des Princes come next season.

According to Get French Football News, the Qatari-owned club plans to relieve the Argentine of his duties as PSG manager, with the French news outlet describing his departure as "imminent".

It would reportedly cost the newly crowned French champions €15 million (R253 million) to sack the former Tottenham Hotspur boss, who has 12 months remaining on his contract.

The club's hierarchy is said to feel Zinedine Zidane would be the ideal replacement, but the ex-Real Madrid coach is understood to prefer the idea of taking over from Didier Deschamps as French national team manager after the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Current Spurs boss Antonio Conte has reportedly already offered his services to the French side on a two-year contract.

It is is said that Daniel Levy, chairman of the Lilywhites, and Pochettino have been in constant communication in recent months, with Levy believed to want the former Southampton manager back in north London.

It seems winning the league title is a prerequisite for all PSG managers, but following their UEFA Champions League collapse at the hands of Real Madrid in the round of 16 this season, the club's chiefs now appear to have deemed Pochettino's services surplus to requirements.
