According to Foot Mercato, OGC Nice would ask between 8 and 10 million euros in compensation to let go of its coach Christophe Galtier, in the sights of PSG.
As announced this Sunday by RMC Sport, Zinedine Zidane – despite the interest of the highest officials of Qatar – will not be the successor of Mauricio Pochettino on the PSG bench. While negotiations have been opened with Nice for Christophe Galtier, the Gym coach is becoming one of the big favorites for the coaching position in Paris. Provided, of course, to find an agreement…
Because if the director of football of OGC Nice, Julien Fournier, recently opened the door to the departure of the technician (“If they want it, they must not delay”), Galtier is still under contract with the Riviera club until 2024. A club which obviously knows the means of PSG, and which logically intends to recover compensation.
Players included in the transaction?
According to Foot Mercato, Nice would thus ask between 8 and 10 million euros, where PSG would not be willing to let go of more than 5 million. What to derail the operation? Not necessarily.
The media explains that the possibility of including players in the transaction has been raised. Clearly, Paris would give a few million to the Gym, and could give it at the same time one or more elements from the long list of undesirables.
One thing is certain in this case: Mauricio Pochettino will leave well. The capital club has reached an agreement with the Argentine technician, who had one year left on his contract. But his departure has not yet been made official.
