In discussions with Paris Saint-Germain for several weeks to break his contract, Mauricio Pochettino will indeed pack his bags before resuming training.
Even if Christophe Galtier is already present at Camp des Loges to prepare for the future season of Paris Saint-Germain, the former coach of Nice is still not officially installed on the bench of the club of the French capital. Quite simply because Mauricio Pochettino is still in place, but not for very long. In negotiations with the PSG since the end of last season, the Argentinian coach has reached an agreement with his leaders to validate his departure. Indeed, according to L’Equipe, the contract which bound the two parties until June 2023 will be broken in the days to come.
Pochettino makes concessions before leaving
“Discussions extended as the Parisian leaders wanted to lower the severance package, while the Argentinian technician saw no reason to do a favor when he was asked to pack his bags on June 10. In the end, a compromise was found for an overall envelope of around €10 million for the coach and his staff, who wanted the payment of salaries corresponding to the 2022-2023 season and made significant concessions in their eyes.can we read on the site of the French sports daily, who knows that this departure will allow PSG to announce the arrival of Christophe Galtier.

Galtier will replace Pochettino
Agreed with PSG last week on the basis of a two-year contract, the former coach of LOSC will therefore become the new coach of PSG, when Paris will have settled compensation of several million in Nice to buy back the last two years of contract which linked the Marseillais to the OGCN. Already present in the French capital to work on the transfer window with Luis Campos, Galtier will therefore have the difficult task of doing better than his predecessors, and in particular Pochettino, by winning the Champions League. A completely feasible mission with stars like Messi, Neymar or Mbappé in its workforce. Provided that the former ASSE coach manages to put his paw on the Ile-de-France locker room.
