Paris Saint-Germain appears on the verge of having a new manager with OGC Nice Christophe Galtier heading to the French capital. L’Equipe ensures that an agreement has been reached between the two clubs.
Between Nice and PSG, an agreement is very close to being concluded on the compensation of close to €10-million to buy out the last two years of Galtier’s contract. Galtier’s appointment date as PSG manager now depends on the formalization departure of Mauricio Pochettino.
Negotiations between the capital club and the Argentinian’s lawyer are ongoing as the 50-year-old tactician has one more year left on his deal, and an announcement is expected by Thursday.
The agreement between the two parties on the compensation of around €15-million would allow Pochettino and his four deputies, Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino, Toni Jimenez, and Sebastiano Pochettino, to be financially compensated.
Until the two sides settle on the final details of their split, PSG won’t be able to announce Pochettino’s successor.
However, there’s no doubt even if Galtier has not yet finalized all the contractual aspects; the French tactician will be at the head of the French champions when training resumes on July 4 at Camp Lodges.
