According to numerous sources, Julian Nagelsmann has begun negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain to succeed Christophe Galtier as coach. The former Bayern Munich manager is scheduled to arrive in the French capital on Tuesday for talks.
However, several news outlets are reporting that PSG have made Nagelsmann their priority goal, with the German coach eager for Thierry Henry to come as his assistant. PSG’s owners, Qatar Sports Investments, have already spoken to several potential replacements, including Luis Enrique and Thiago Motta.
According to sources, the club sees Nagelsmann as the best manager to make use of a fantastic group of young players who are on the rise and feels he can create a strong collective, something Galtier and former manager Mauricio Pochettino failed to do.
Despite leading the team to the Ligue 1 championship in his first season in command, Galtier is anticipated to be fired by PSG. As they continue their quest for their first European championship, his stay at the club included the club’s dismal round-of-16 Champions League exit this season.
Bayern Munich fired Nagelsmann in March. The German coach reportedly spoke to Chelsea about their open manager position last month, according to a number of news outlets, but the conversations did not go well and he was not selected for the position.
Prior to Tottenham disqualifying him, he was also connected to them.
