Agreement in sight between Nice and PSG for Christophe Galtier

The date of the appointment of Christophe Galtier as coach of Paris-Saint-Germain now depends on that of the formalization of the departure of the incumbent, Mauricio Pochettino. Negotiations between the capital club and the Argentinian’s lawyer, under contract for another year, are continuing and an announcement is expected by Thursday.

The agreement could be obtained on compensation of around €15m, the amount due to “Poche” and the four deputies making up his staff: Jesus Perez, Miguel D’Agostino, Toni Jimenez and Sebastiano Pochettino. Until the two sides agree on the final details of their split, PSG won’t be able to announce the name of Pochettino’s successor.

Galtier should be back on July 4 at Camp des Loges

However, his identity is no longer in doubt: even if Galtier has not yet finalized all the contractual aspects, he should be at the head of the French champions when training resumes on July 4 at Camp Lodges.

Between Nice and Paris, an agreement is very close to being concluded on compensation close to 10 M€ in order to buy the last two years of the French coach’s contract on the Côte d’Azur. The management of the two clubs now hope that everything will accelerate: Paris to announce Galtier and Nice to record the name of his successor.
