Paris St Germain have been dominating French football and is set to do so for the next decade due to the riches at the hands of the club. Since the takeover of the Qatari owners, they have spent more than 300 million pounds in transfer fees alone. This has allowed the club to bring in the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani. Even with the stars, it is a big job to get the club performing every week and this has been done seamlessly by Laurent Blanc. President Nasser Al-Khelaifi has now revealed that the club are considering offering a new contract for the former Manchester United man.
After taking over from Ancelotti in the summer, Blanc was expected to struggle with the plethora of big stars at the club. However, he has been able to deal the big egos quite brilliantly and get them 13 points clear at the top of the French league. Blanc’s work has not gone unnoticed, as the president plans to give him a new contract at the end of the season. Blanc has also managed to get the club into the quarter-finals of the Champions League. They are in a strong position to get into the semi-finals after managing to be to their opponents Chelsea 3-1 in the first leg with the second leg coming up shortly.
“An extension for Laurent Blanc? It will surely happen this week. He will remain at PSG. We want him to stay and he wants to stay. I believe everyone is satisfied with the job done by the technical staff. We play better football nowadays. I have huge respect for Carlo Ancelotti who is a great coach, but Laurent Blanc changed the style and quality of the game. I am very happy. I can confirm it: Laurent Blanc will stay at PSG,” said Al-Khelaifi.
