Parisian money bags step up bid for Malaga boss.
PSG have stepped up their bid to make Malaga’s Manuel Pellegrini their new manager, according to The Express.
Current PSG gaffer Carlo Ancelotti has been tipped as one of the names to replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid this summer and their other choice, Arsene Wenger has promised to see out the final year of his contract at Arsenal.
And it now appears as though their number one target is the Malaga boss, who has also been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea.
Reports in Spain have suggested that PSG owner Sheikh Abdullah Al-Thani will hold talks with Ancelotti in the coming weeks, most likely when they secure the Ligue 1 title, to discuss what will happen next concerning his future.
Should Ancelotti decide to step away will turn his attentions to Pellegrini.
Al-Thani has reportedly been impressed with the 59-year-old Chilean after he oversaw a decent campaign with the La Liga outfit despite being bound by some serious financial difficulties off the pitch.
Malaga currently sit in sixth place in the Spanish league table, just three points behind Valencia and a place in the Europa League next season.
He also guided the club to the quarter finals of the Champions League at their first attempt.
