PSG advances its pawns on the file of its future coach. While the end of Christophe Galtier's adventure in the capital was recorded at the beginning of the week by the Parisian leaders, they are now working to find a successor. The discussions of the moment focus around Julian Nagelsmann, former coach of Bayern Munich. Discussions took place on Tuesday during a meeting organized in Paris bringing together Luis Campos and a representative of the 35-year-old German technician to discuss the contours of a future collaboration.
The debates focused in particular on the desires of Julian Nagelsmann, around his project of the game and the composition of the next Parisian squad. The cost of a possible arrival of the German technician was also discussed. An important point of this file since Nagelsmann is under contract for another three seasons with Bayern Munich, despite his eviction last winter from the Bavarian club. In Nagelsmann's entourage, we want to be cautious and we temper the thing.
Luis Enrique and Xabi Alonso always followed
If the decision-makers of PSG are currently discussing with the former coach of RB Leipzig, the exchanges continue in parallel with other coaches on the short-list of the Parisian club. Luis Enrique, former coach of FC Barcelona and coach of Spain, even if his entourage denies any contact, as well as Xabi Alonso, current coach of Bayer Leverkusen, are still part of the tracks closely followed by PSG. The Jose Mourinho option is not being studied, as we wrote on May 17.
The profile of the next coach who will take place on the Parisian bench is in any case clearly defined: in the eyes of the leaders of PSG, the future technician will have to know how to manage the great players, manage a dressing room the size of PSG and have the necessary knowledge of a big club.
