Paris Saint-Germain consider Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez

Paris Saint-Germain are considering Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez as a possible replacement for Thomas Tuchel, say reports.

The Parisians fell to a shock Coupe de France final loss against Rennes at the weekend and following on from their Champions League Round of 16 exit, Tuchel is under pressure.

The Sunday Mirror claim that former Valencia and Real Madrid boss Benitez is in the frame to replace the German in the French capital this summer.

Benitez has once again guided the Magpies to safety but a long-standing dispute with club owner Mike Ashley may force an exit at the end of the campaign.

Tuchel has guided PSG to the Ligue 1 title this campaign but it may not be enough to save his job.
