PSG have found their next manager following the expected sacking of current head coach Christophe Galtier: Spanish coach Luis Enrique, who has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with Paris Saint-Germain with an additional and optional third season attached to it.

Luis Enrique, who last coached the Spain national team in the 2022 World Cup, will become the new manager of PSG and he will take over Galtier's position ahead of July 10, when PSG have scheduled their return to training ahead of the new season.

Football insider Matteo Moretto of Relevo broke the news on Friday, June 30, saying that "Luis Enrique has become the new coach of PSG" while quoting an earlier tweet published on his account on June 18 in which he already reported the initial contract.

This news bring an end to a saga that dragged for the larger part of the second half of last season since the first reports of PSG's interest in sacking Galtier earlier than his contract's expiring date started to pop up.

Earlier this week, Le Parisien also informed of the aforementioned two-year deal offered by PSG to Enrique. In truth, it makes sense, as that's a very reasonable length and aligns with deals offered by the Parisian organization to other managers in the past.

Thierry Oleksiak will leave with Galtier and leave a vacancy in the ass. man. role, but Le Parisien opened the door to a possible collaboration with the rest of the previous staff with Enrique, citing, in particular, the case of coaching assistant Joao Sacramento.

Other staffers could stay put, such as Pedro Gomez, in charge of physical preparation, who was assisted by Alberto PiernasIsidro Ramon was responsible for the video analysis and might also be retained by PSG and Enrique.

It's funny, though, how PSG and Enrique are already working on their staff for next season while the capital club hasn't even finalized their breakup with current (and still employed) manager Christophe Galtier...
