Paris Saint-Germain have already lined up Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim as their next manager, according to reports in France.

Despite the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe this summer, as well as starting their Ligue 1 and Champions League campaigns in brilliant fashion, PSG appear to be not fully satisfied with the job Unai Emery is doing.

TOP Mercato report that PSG’s sporting director Antero Henrique has already made his choice over who will be the next manager of the Parisians.

Jardim has impressed many across France and the rest of Europe after guiding Monaco to the Ligue 1 title and the semi-finals of the Champions League last season.

Jardim, who joined Monaco in 2014, signed a new three-year contract with the club until 2020 back in the summer but PSG will be looking to prise him away.

Meanwhile, Emery will still be hoping to convince those above him at PSG that he is the right man to lead his side to glory this season, and he can go a long way to achieving that by winning Europe’s elite competition come the end of the campaign.

The French giants have won their first two Champions League group games, with their most recent victory coming at the Parc des Princes against Bayern Munich where they won 3-0.

PSG have also started their Ligue 1 campaign in emphatic style, picking up 22 points from their first eight matches of the season.
