Galtier wants to join PSG, his departure from Nice under study

PSG is looking for Mauricio Pochettino’s successor, who will be pushed out in the coming days. Christophe Galtier is still well placed. The Nice coach wants to come and the Gym is considering his departure.

May the supporters of Paris Saint-Germain be reassured. It shouldn’t take very long to get to know the club’s new coach. After the signing of the three-year contract of Luis Campos as sports adviser at the end of last week, the Parisian leaders are advancing on the name of their next technician. In the coming days, the decision-makers of the capital club must already announce to Mauricio Pochettino and his staff that they will not be able to honor the last year of their contract. Then will come the finalization of his replacement.

Christophe Galtier still appears as well placed in a shrinking list. Several sources indicate that the Nice coach is now in competition with only one other coach, whose name has not filtered. Galtier no longer hides it in private: he wants to join Paris Saint-Germain and the most ambitious project of his career so far. He would find Luis Campos there, whom he knew in Lille. If the Frenchman was chosen, he would still remain at PSG to agree with OGC Nice. Far from being an insurmountable obstacle.

Faivre, Kompany and Rose targeted by the Gym

Because at the same time, the Riviera club is advancing on its own restructuring. INEOS, owner of the club, would not take a dim view of the departure of his coach. From Nice sources, it cannot be ruled out that Christophe Galtier will no longer be the coach of OGC Nice next season, even in the event of failure with PSG.

For several days, Dave Brailsford, “sports director” at INEOS, and fully involved in Nice now, has met some technician profiles who could arrive. Lucien Favre, Vincent Kompany and Marco Rose are among them. Nice could therefore facilitate a departure from Galtier by trying to recover part of the millions of euros invested last season to sign him from Lille. It’s up to Paris to take the first step now.
