Tottenham Hotspur coach Mauricio Pochettino and Chelsea's Antonio Conte are the two highest names on Paris Saint-Germain's shortlist to replace manager Unai Emery, sources close to the French club have told ESPN FC. Emery's contract expires in the summer and he missed the chance to extend that deal when PSG were comfortably beaten by Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday. Sources said the thought at PSG for some time has been that Emery will be replaced by Pochettino, with the only question being when a move will be made. PSG chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi -- who distanced himself from the Madrid defeat -- is under pressure to move quickly after Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the emir of Qatar and founder of club owner Oryx Qatar Sports Investments, left the Parc des Princes before the final whistle. It is not expected that Emery's contract will be renewed, and Al-Khelaifi will now focus on PSG's next move. Sacking the coach before the end of the season has not been ruled out, the sources said, with assistants Maxwell and Zoumana Camara potential interim managers.
