PSG have shockingly sacked German coach Thomas Tuchel as the head coach of the Ligue 1 club. The relationship between the club and manager had become strained in recent times, with both sides clashing frequently over the transfer policy internally. Tuchel had another six months remaining on his contract. Former PSG player and Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is the favourite to take over at the Ligue 1 club.

France forward Kylian Mbappé was a player who had a turbulent relationship with the German coach. Tuchel's dismissal has now become a new obstacle in Madrid's pursuit to sign Mbappé next summer. Now, everything is slightly more complicated.

The dismissal of Tuchel will not only affect Mbappé moving to the Spanish capital, it could also affect Zidane's future successor, when the Frenchman leaves his spot on the bench at the Santiago Bernabéu.
