PSG and Luis Enrique have reached a complete agreement, according to information provided by sources to RMC Sport and revealed by the outlet on Saturday, July 1. The deal is expected to keep Enrique in Paris for the next two seasons at the very least.

RMC is reporting early on Saturday that Luis Enrique will, in fact, take over as the new coach of PSG in the upcoming days with Christophe Galtier expected to be finally fired throughout next week before giving way to the Spaniard to start leading training sessions when the squad returns to the training ground next July 10.

Galtier, who was taken into custody on Friday, June 30, and is facing time in prison, was informed a few weeks ago that he would not continue managing PSG next season.

Luis Enrique is already assembling his staff, according to RMC, although there is no official announcement yet by PSG but it is "expected to happen soon."

Since his departure from the Spanish national team after the 2022 World Cup, the 53-year-old Spanish coach has been "finalizing the composition of his staff, with a few details remaining to be settled," reports RMC.

PSG sporting advisor Luis Campos is believed to have agreed to the appointment of Luis Enrique, according to RMC, while adding that the Portuguese advisor have has kept the upcoming PSG manager "updated on all transfer matters."

Sources have told RMC that Luis Enrique "has provided his input on potential targets," and that the Spaniard "has worked closely with Campos."

If RMC sources are right, then the Spanish coach will sign a two-year contract with PSG. The official announcement, however, won't be made until PSG finalize the departure of Christophe Galtier. RMC informed that "a few days ago, the two parties were close to reaching an agreement to terminate the contract of Galtier," which runs through June 2024, and would demand an early firing in order to open the door for Luis Enrique to take over the PSG bench ahead of next season.
