Laurent Blanc's future at PSG thrust into doubt

Laurent BlancLaurent Blanc's future at PSG has been thrust into doubt following the club's Champions League exit. The pressure of progressing through to the semi-finals appeared to get to the terribly below-par French giants, who crumbled under the weight of expectation in a 3-2 aggregate defeat to Man City.

It marked the fourth successive season which PSG have been dumped out in the quarter-finals, which could in turn have grave consequences for boss Blanc, who only signed a new two-year contact two months ago.

PSG may have wrapped up the Ligue 1 title in record time last month - courtesy of a 9-0 hammering of sorry Troyes - while they are one game away from holding the French League Cup, but it's no secret that hoisting the Champions League trophy is the club's main target.

If Blanc is sent packing in the summer, then there's a couple of high-profile managers with whom PSG could turn to.

First up is Jose Mourinho, who has managed in Portugal, England, Italy, and Spain, but never France. The former Chelsea boss continues to be hotly linked with a move to Man Utd, but if this on-going saga falls through, then PSG could prove to be an attractive option for the 53-year-old (10/1 with Bet Victor).

He may just have knocked them out of the Champions League, but the soon-to-be out of work Manuel Pellegrini will be available in the summer. The Chilean has been linked with his country's national team, and a return to Spain, but his head would no doubt be turned if a vacancy opens in the French capital.
