PSG to sack Leonardo, Pochettino as Mbappe chooses new sporting director, manage

Paris Saint-Germain has handed Kylian Mbappe the power to influence the sporting project at the club.

According to ESPN, in one of the many rounds of talks held with the PSG hierarchy, Mbappe said he is not keen on Leonardo as the club’s sporting director next season.

The 23-year-old identified transfer guru Campos as an alternative.

Campos was at Monaco when Mbappe burst into the limelight and won the Ligue 1 title in 2017 and reached the Champions League semifinals.

The 57-year-old, who is a free agent after leaving Lille, has a reputation for unearthing top talent and securing large transfer fees for hidden gems.

Mauricio Pochettino is also expected to be fired as manager of the Ligue 1 side.

Former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is the favourite to take over this summer.
