"Ideas can not be bought..."
Despite the growing pressure Emery is on track to win a domestic treble this season, with PSG in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue and the Coupe de France semi-finals, while his side have a 14-point cushion in the league.
The former Sevilla coach, however, is not getting anxious about the possibility of being fired by PSG at the end of the campaign.
According to the report, delegates from Real met with Neymar's father and two attorneys a few weeks ago in order to explore a possible deal, and €400 million apparently emerged as PSG's asking price.
With Sacchi's words in mind, PSG need new inspiration.
"These players are young and things that they say can be misinterpreted. The people who are in this project can change, but the project itself is very solid". There is no doubt that now is the right time to change coach, but it is also the right time to look at other areas of the hierarchy too.
His team saw off the challenge of Emery's Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last 16 with a 5-2 aggregate win over the Ligue 1 leaders, leading to rumours that the Spaniard will be on his way out of Parc des Princes.
Chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi wants either somebody capable of commanding the respect of the players to produce better performances, akin to Real's Zinedine Zidane, or somebody offering fresh ideas, like City's Guardiola.
The 19-year-old admits that the days since their humbling at the hands of Madrid have been hard, but stressed the importance of swiftly turning their attention to claiming a domestic treble. "I spent almost three years there (2001-03)".
The project is that of PSG, I believe in this project. "Little by little, we will forget going out to Real".
"The most important thing is the analysis which can be done and what we can improve". This summer is also a rare opportunity to preempt another European giant in snaring the coveted South American.
"PSG are only a group of players".
