The president of PSG acknowledged that negotiations were underway to bring in Christophe Galtier. On the Nice side, we are thinking of making an announcement before the weekend, there is a detail of 15 million euros to settle.
There is no longer any suspense regarding Mauricio Pochettino’s successor, since Nasser Al-Khelaifi has confirmed that he is negotiating with his counterpart from OGC Nice for the arrival of Christophe Galtier. Even if he indicated that the Gym was too greedy for the moment before reaching an agreement, on the side of the Riviera club we are convinced that the case is heard. Even to the point that Nice-Matin announces that Lucien Favre met Monday evening Julien Fournier, the director of football. The Swiss technician spoke in particular about the transfer window, so that things do not drag out too much when he is appointed. The regional daily also claims that PSG and OGC Nice have agreed on a transfer of 8 million euros for Christophe Galtier. The 55-year-old coach cost Ineos 3 million euros last year, when the Ratcliffes went to get him from Lille. The operation is well advanced, but now everything is linked to the signing of a definitive agreement between Paris Saint-Germain and Mauricio Pochettino.

Things are not progressing as quickly as the champions of France wish, because it is obviously not the Argentine coach in person who negotiates his departure as well as that of his staff, but lawyers who are in Argentina. They therefore do not have the same office hours as those of PSG. However, the French club is aware that the discussions will not allow it to lower the price of the operation too much. The extension contract signed a year ago almost to the day ensures Mauricio Pochettino a PSG version salary until June 30, 2023. A year’s salary which is expensive, and even if Paris Saint-Germain are dragging their feet, it he will have to pay more or less all of these wages. Anyway, Nice-Matin announces that this week will be the good one and that next weekend Christophe Galtier will be on the bench of the capital club, Lucien Favre on that of OGC Nice and Mauricio Pochettino a luxury unemployed with close to 15 million euros in his bank account. White smoke is expected above the Parc des Princes and the Allianz Riviera.
