PSG coach Laurent Blanc is being linked with Manchester City. Blanc is expected to be given the push by PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi at the end of the season after failing to reach the final four of the Champions League.

Le Parisien says City are interested in the former Manchester United and Barcelona defender as a replacement for Manuel Pellegrini.

City would be willing to pay Blanc €500,000-a-month to move to England.

However, Chelsea's shock win at Liverpool and City's victory at Crystal Palace has strengthened Pellegrini's job prospects in the past 24 hours.
