After Qatar Sports Investments took over PSG more than 10 years ago, the club has had a history of early sackings and failures. One more example of this will be made once the impending departure of Christophe Galtier is made official, which is right on the verge of happening according to L'Equipe.
Galtier, the 56-year-old manager, recently coached his 50th and final match for PSG against Clermont at the Parc des Princes, resulting in a 2-3 defeat. Despite nothing being officially communicated to him yet, it is expected that his departure will be confirmed this week with a meeting between the manager and the board of PSG scheduled to take place on Monday, June 5.
The (still) head coach of PSG, however, intends to handle this firing calmly and he will only seek compensation equivalent to his remaining year on the contract without pursuing further payments getting handed to him because of the professional and personal damages that breaking his contract earlier than its expiring date (June 2024) could cause to him.
Galtier is scheduled to meet with Luis Campos today. However, their discussions are not expected to focus on next year's squad building under the guidance of both men, but rather only the latter with the former expected to get the ax sooner rather than later.
It is believed that PSG will try to secure their next manager before proceeding with Galtier's firing in order to have their future set up before moving on without a backup plan, just in case something goes wrong in the negotiations with Julian Nagelsmann or any prospective future head coach.
Nagelsmann is reportedly the top priority to replace Galtier, as he's seen as the best option by the management of PSG based in Doha.
PSG will also have to provide compensation to Galtier, who is contracted with the club until June 2024 and earns an estimated gross monthly salary of €665k.
This week might see the end of the putrid Galtier era at PSG while opening a new chapter in the history of the famous Parisian organization, now helmed by a German along with France world champion Thierry Henry if the rumors are correct. Exciting times ahead!
