Emery waiting on PSG

Unai Emery to Paris Saint-Germain is on hold as the Ligue 1 champions are negotiating a severance for current Coach Laurent Blanc.

AS reports Emery will be confirmed once Blanc’s future is settled as PSG can’t pay the €2m release fee to Los Rojiblancos until they know the terms of Blanc’s pay-off, and in turn, Sevilla can’t move forward with their summer planning until Emery’s next step is definite.

Sporting director Monchi is talking with prospective replacements, including ex-Roma boss Rudi Garcia, the favourite, and Juanma Lilo, an intermediary for former Chile trainer Jorge Sampaoli.

But the Europa League winners can’t press ahead with signings such as Hannover’s Japan midfielder Hiroshi Kiyotake until they know who will take the bench from France-bound Emery.
