Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has said he doesn't want “flashy, bling-bling” at the club anymore.

The French champions are about to begin a new era with Nice's Christophe Galtier replacing Mauricio Pochettino and Luis Campos installed as football advisor.

Zinedine Zidane has been heavily linked with a move to Parc des Princes but Al-Khelaifi has said he has “chosen another option”.

The Frenchman is constantly labelled as PSG's dream manager but Al-Khelaifi said that's not the case.

Al-Khelaifi, speaking to Le Parisien, said: “Dreams are one thing, reality is another.

“Perhaps we should change our slogan... dream bigger is good, but today we must be realistic, we don't want flashy, bling-bling anymore, it's the end of the glitter.”

Al-Khelaifi also insisted he has never spoken to Zidane over the possibility of hiring the Frenchman as manager.

Zidane is available as he has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid for the second time as their manager in May 2021.

Al-Khelaifi added: “I love Zidane, he was a fantastic player with incredible class. He was also an exceptional coach with three Champions League titles.

“But I'll tell you one thing: we never spoke to him, either directly or indirectly. Many clubs are interested in him, national teams too, but we have never spoken to him.

“We chose another option. We chose a coach who will be the best for what we want to put in place.

“I'm not here to compare coaches. I know exactly what we need. There are details in the club that you don't know.”
