Mega-rich Ligue 1 outfit turn to Swansea manager.

PSG have turned their attentions to Swansea boss Michael Laudrup after Tottenham’s Andre Villas-Boas rejected the French club’s advances, reports French daily L’Equipe.

The Ligue 1 champions are expecting current head-coach Carlo Ancelotti to depart for Real Madrid in the coming weeks, and were reportedly willing to pay £10m to trigger Villas-Boas’ release clause as they seek a replacement for the Italian.

But the 35-year-old Portuguese tactician has reportedly indicated he is not interested in abandoning his work at White Hart Lane, after a fine debut season in north London.

The Parisiens will now turned their attentions to Laudrup, who is facing at uncertain future at the Liberty Stadium.

The Dane is reportedly at war with Jacks chairman Huw Jenkins over transfer targets, and PSG believe they can tempt the former Juventus, Barcelona and Real star to the Parc des Princes.

Laudrup, 48, guided Swansea to the first piece of silverware in their history last season, when they beat Bradford to claim the Capital One Cup, and a top ten finish in the Premier League.

He has previously managed Mallorca, Spartak Moscow, Getafe and Brondby.
