Still under contract until June 2023, Mauricio Pochettino will no longer be PSG coach in the coming days. The Argentinian coach is fine-tuning the final details of his departure with his future ex-leaders. To replace it, several names have been put forward (Conte, Motta, Amorim, Conceicao, Zidane) but the lucky winner is called Christophe Galtier. Still under contract until June 2024 with OGC Nice, the former Lille technician has reached an agreement with the Rouge & Bleu for a two-year contract plus an optional year. The two teams had to reach an agreement on the compensation that PSG will have to pay to buy out the last two years of Galtier’s contract.
Compensation of less than 10 million euros
According to information from goal, discussions for the purchase of the last two years of Christophe Galtier’s contract between PSG and Nice – which lasted for two weeks – have been completed in the last few hours, even if there are still some administrative details. As announced for several days, the formalization of this movement will only be made when PSG has reached an agreement with Mauricio Pochettino and his staff. The compensation paid by Paris should be less than 10 million euros announced everywhere in the press. On his side, Goal Spain indicates that the capital club would like to lower the compensation paid to Mauricio Pochettino and his staff, while the Argentinian would like not to lose a penny. But the discussions are progressing, concludes the sports media.
