For days, there has been speculation about Julian Nagelsmann's involvement with Paris Saint Germain. Now it could happen very quickly.
Paris - The rumor mill about a possible employment of former Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann at the French top club Paris Saint Germain has been bubbling for quite some time. Now it seems that PSG have made room for the German, who could have a French legend in Thierry Henry.

Ex-Bayern coach: Nagelsmann on his way to Paris
The sparrows are whistling it from the rooftops of Paris: winning the French championship is not enough for Christophe Galtier to be allowed to stay in his post. Various French media consistently report that the 56-year-old has been informed of his release. The Qatari owners' claim is the Champions League title, and this has been missed once again this season.
The luxury squad from Paris failed in the CL round of 7 against FC Bayern Munich, once coached by Julian Nagelsmann. Now, of all people, Nagelsmann, who was dismissed from FCB at the end of March, is said to be the Qataris' preferred solution for the coaching position in Paris. According to a report by L'Equipe, Nagelsmann is expected to continue talks that have already begun in Paris as early as tomorrow, Wednesday, June <> – possibly these could already be the final negotiations. However, not everyone is convinced of this solution and so there is sometimes clear criticism from France.

Henry in talks with Nagelsmann at PSG
Now, every change of coach brings with it a number of other personal changes, because as the name head coach suggests, there is also a whole staff of other assistant and athletic coaches. Thierry Henry, who, according to various consistent media reports, has already exchanged views with Nagelsmann about possible cooperation, could move into this staff. Henry was most recently assistant coach of the Belgian national team and previously coached AS Monaco and CF Montréal.
The possible addition of Henry to Nagelsmann's coaching team is also necessary because his assistant coaches from his Bayern days are traded at another club. Dino Toppmöller has been linked with a move to the head coach position of Eintracht Frankfurt, with Xaver Zembrod, another former companion of Nagelsmann, expected to assist him. (sch)
