Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly the preferred to choice to Paris Saint-Germain if the French giants decide to sack Thomas Tuchel.

Les Parisiens suffered a 2-1 defeat to in the Champions League, which was their second defeat in Group H and fourth competitive loss for the 2020/21 campaign, and the club hierarchy could be prompted into sacking the German in the near future.

L’Equipe reports that Paris Saint-Germain director Leonardo wants to relieve Tuchel of his duties and replace him with former Juventus tactician Allegri but club patron Nasser Al-Khelaifi might not be willing to let go of the coach too quickly.

Tuchel is in the final year of his contract with the club and the German would be entitled to a payout of €10 million if he was sacked early.

In addition to Allegri, the other coaching candidates for Les Parisiens include former Genoa coach Thiago Motta and ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino.
