Paris St-Germain make contact with Antonio Conte to succeed Unai Emery

PSG 'unlucky' with Champions League exit- Keane

The Stamford Bridge head coach has struggled to maintain a positive relationship with owner Roman Abramovich since lifting the Premier League title last May; repeatedly criticizing both his shortage of available funds in the transfer market as well as his lack of influence on who comes into the club.

The Ligue 1 club have already made discreet overtures about the Italian replacing under-pressure manager Unai Emery ahead of next season.

However, the exceedingly high expectations at Real means that Zidane could well depart should they fail to taste success in Europe, with Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino the favourite to replace him at the Bernabeu.

Unai Emery is now in charge of PSG, but he could well be leaving Paris this summer, having failed to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

Contrary to popular beliefs prior to the tie, Los Blancos fashioned a fairly emphatic win against the much fancied PSG to advance to the quarterfinals of the Champions league. The first leg finished 1-1.

London could witness another end of season exit in Antonio Conte, whose future at Chelsea has been shredded in doubt for some time.

Pochettino falls into the latter category and, as well as being a long-term option, has interested Al-Khelaifi for some time because of his desire to one day coach the club for which he once played. The Serb played for Chelsea from 2000-02 and is now pushing for promotion from the Championship with Fulham, who have not lost in the league since December.

He counts Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho among his friends and has observed several Carlo Ancelotti training sessions. He left the Hornets before the next season started because of a contract stand-off.
