MAURICIO POCHETTINO’S proposed exit from Paris Saint-Germain has reportedly hit a snag over his compensation fee.
Poch was reportedly sacked by the Ligue 1 club last week for failing to lead them to Champions League glory last season.
The 50-year-old Argentine won the Ligue 1 title with the Parisiens but it wasn’t enough for him to stay on as club boss.
And it seemed to be an amicable split after both parties ostensibly agreed on a severance package.
However, AS now claim Poch’s exit talks with PSG are turning acrimonious due to a dispute over his departure fee.
The figure was set at £17million, but PSG are intent on reducing the amount.
This doesn’t sit well with Poch who has no intention of leaving with less than the agreed price, the report adds.
It’s not the first time Poch has been awarded a hefty severance package.
Spurs handed him £19.5m when they axed him in 2019.
Both PSG and Poch will be hoping they can reach an agreement to move forward on their respective paths.

PSG want Poch gone swiftly so they can replace him with Christophe Galtier who’s favourite for the job.
The Ligue 1 Champions were eyeing Zinedine Zidane, but he’s reportedly intent on bagging the France job, it was also written.
And Poch isn’t short on offers either with Athletic Bilbao leading the pack to acquire his services.
However, the former Southampton boss isn’t keen on the role as he’d rather return to England, according to reports.
