Paris Saint-Germain have made an approach to Jose Mourinho to become their new manager this summer, according to Sky sources.
PSG chairman Nasser al Khelaifi is reported to have approached Mourinho through his agent Jorge Mendes after PSG's Champions League exit at the hands of Manchester City last week.
Sky Sports are reporting that Mourinho's preference is to wait until the end of the season and see if the Manchester United job is still available.

Current PSG boss Laurent Blanc signed a new two-year contract in February but Al Khelaifi wants Mourinho to replace him this summer.
