PSG-Battle for Europe

Carlo Ancelotti has taken over as Real Madrid manager, with Laurent Blanc replacing the Italian as coach of Paris St-Germain.

Blanc, 47, has agreed a two-year contract at the Parc des Princes.

PSG appeared to be trying to secure a replacement for Ancelotti before letting him go and said they were "delighted" at Blanc's appointment, despite French media claiming he was not the first choice.

He will take charge of the squad on 1 July for the start of pre-season training.

Blanc played for Montpellier, Auxerre, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Manchester United among others during his playing career, and the former central defender was also part of the French side which won the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000.

As a manager, he led Bordeaux to the 2009 French league title before having a stint in charge of his country's national team between 2010 and 2012.

He will now assume control of a PSG outfit which has become one of European football's major players since being taken over by Qatar Sports Investments in August 2011.

PSG Close In On Walker

French champions PSG have made a formal bid for Spurs right back Kyle Walker. Sky sources believe the bid is around £17 million. Laurent Blanc was keen to tell the media he wanted to strengthen his defence as well as sign another top striker. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy told Sky Sports News that they had received a bid for Walker and they would make a decision in a few hours time.

Kyle Walker has made 100 appearances for the North London club and has won 10 caps for England. The 23 year old has hinted at his departure from White Hart Lane after taking to a social media website to say, "Tottenham are a fantastic club who have been great to me but there is always going to be a time to leave"

PSG have also approach Atletico Madrid about the availability of left back Filipe and centre back Miranda, although it is not expected that either of those deals will be complete. Atletico stated that the two defenders are not for sale as they look to challenge for La Liga title.
