Roberto Mancini could leave Inter for Paris Saint-Germain

New, comments

It has been reported that the Inter boss' contract contains a clause which would allow him to leave to manage Paris Saint-Germain if the French club were to approach him with an offer.

According to Talking Baws' website, Roberto Mancini's contract with Inter Milan contains a clause which states that he can leave the Italian side to become the manager of Paris Saint-Germain if approached by the French club.

The surfacing of this particular bit of news creates speculation that current PSG boss Laurent Blanc may be in the hot seat after a fairly mediocre campaign in Ligue 1 so far by the reigning French champions' recent standards.

That said, after just over half the season, the club sit at 4th in the table and are only 1 point off of Champions League qualification and 4 points adrift of leaders Lyon. So they're hardly in what many supporters would consider "panic mode."

After PSG's slow start to the season, club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi responded to French media saying that Blanc's job was not in jeopardy and that he would definitely be with PSG through the end of the 2014/15 season. Blanc also signed a contract extension with through the end of the 2015/16 season back in May 2014.

It had been reported that Mancini was close to signing with Les Parisiens when Ancelotti left the position in the summer of 2013. And Mancio certainly has contacts with several players there, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Motta.

So what if Mancini leads Inter to third place in Serie A this season and PSG fail to qualify for the Champions League? I don't want to believe that Mancini would leave Inter just because PSG came knocking. How would you feel, Inter community?
