Unai Emery has announced he will be leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.
Emery, 46, has been on borrowed time at Parc des Princes after PSG were knocked out of the Champions League in the last-16 stage.

He informed his players of his decision this morning and announced the news at a press conference.

“I have told the players, [sporting director] Antero [Henrique] and the president [Nasser Al-Khelaifi] that it is finished,” Emery said.

“I thank everybody.

“All that remains is the Coupe de France final.”

Arsene Wenger has been linked with the post since announcing he will be leaving Arsenal after 22 years in charge of the north London club.French publication Le 10 Sport claim Wenger has held talks with PSG chiefs.

He has reportedly been offered a four-year contract to become their new boss.

But it is former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel that is the frontrunner.

PSG boss Unai Emery announces departure: Could Arsene Wenger take job?

German news outlet Bild reported earlier this month that Tuchel has penned a two-year deal to succeed Emery.PSG appointed Emery as manager in 2016 but he suffered a difficult debut campaign as they were pipped to the Ligue 1 title by Monaco and blew a 6-1 aggregate lead against Barcelona in the Champions League knockout stages.

The Spaniard did lift the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Liga but the pressure was on to win major silverware this term.

PSG – aided by the world-record signing of Neymar – romped to Ligue 1 glory but the failure to make headway in the Champions League has proved to be Emery’s undoing.

Emery could get his hands on one final trophy next month when PSG take on third-tier minnows Les Herbiers in the Coupe de France final.
