As Christophe Galtier‘s future hangs in the balance after another defeat for PSG, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi is said to have contacted Julian Nagelsmann for the coach position.
On Sunday evening, in the closing match of the 29th round of Ligue 1, Paris Saint-Germain suffered their eighth defeat of the 2023 calendar year. For several observers like Daniel Riolo and Pierre Ménès, this was one defeat too many, and they are calling on the Parisian management to quickly part ways with Christophe Galtier. However, RMC Sport and Teamreported on Monday that no decision has yet been made in this regard.
Journalist Arthur Perrot, in particular, affirms that Galtier is indeed weakened, but no decision has yet been made regarding his future at the moment. Nevertheless, PSG executives are said to be preparing behind the scenes for the succession of Mauricio Pochettino‘s successor. Julian Nagelsmann, who has just arrived from Bayern Munich, is thus reportedly in the plans of the Rouge et Bleu.

Indeed, according to Nizaar Kinsella, Paris Saint-Germain would be interested in Julian Nagelsmann’s profile to take over from Christophe Galtier. Although no official decision has yet been made, the capital club’s management should dismiss the former coach of OGC Nice, according to the Blues’ special correspondent in various media. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi is even said to have already met with the 35-year-old German technician to present him with the Parisian project.
However, the former Daily Mirror journalist asserts that the president of the French capital club will have to face competition from Chelsea in this matter. The London club is hoping that Graham Potter‘s recent dismissal will give them a real advantage in the race to sign Nagelsmann ahead of Paris SG and Real Madrid. For its part, Bayern Munich is reportedly willing to negotiate with any club to let Nagelsmann go in order to save his salary until 2026, according to Fabrizio Romano, who adds that no club has yet discussed compensation at this stage.
PSG thus knows what it has to do.
