Christophe Galtier's tenure as the coach of PSG has come to an end. Le Parisien first reported the news in the early Tuesday afternoon, confirming his official departure from Paris Saint-Germain.
A press conference is scheduled for Wednesday, July 5, at 2 p.m. in the newly constructed training center in Poissy.
The club is expected to make a dual announcement. The formalization of Galtier's exit will be followed by the official confirmation of Luis Enrique as the new coach of the Rouge & Bleu.
On Tuesday, an agreement was reached between Galtier and PSG, settling the terms of his departure, including the compensation package for Galtier and his technical staff. Reports in recent weeks had mentioned a sum of €6m for the 2023 French champion, though the final figure is reportedly in the €9-10m ballpark.
Following a month of discussions, including a period of severed contact between the two sides and a brief interval during which Galtier was held in custody by the police in Nice as part of an investigation into allegations of discrimination and moral harassment during his time at OGC Nice, it is now official, albeit unofficially confirmed: Christophe Galtier is no longer the coach of Paris Saint-Germain.
For the incoming manager, Luis Enrique will already have tasks awaiting him, as training is set to resume on specific dates: non-international players are expected to return on Friday, July 7, while those involved in international matches will resume training ten days later, on July 17.
Enrique is expected to meet some of his players for the first time on Thursday, July 6, and he will let a few of them know in advance that they are not part of his plans for the upcoming season, thus warning them of their potential exits whether that's on loan or sold to other clubs.
