Galtier only lasted one season in the hot seat at Parc des Princes, despite delivering the 2022-23 Ligue 1 title, as he faced fierce criticism following the team’s round of 16 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

Galtier became PSG’s seventh permanent manager since their Qatari takeover in 2011 when he was appointed on a two-year contract last summer.

The French giants managed to retain their Ligue 1 crown under the Frenchman, finishing one point ahead of second-placed Lens, but they regressed on the European stage as he struggled to bring the best out of superstar names like Lionel Messi and Neymar.

Galtier also faced allegations of racism in April, stemming from his time in charge at Nice, and gradually lost the faith of club bosses as PSG finished their latest campaign with a whimper.

Former Bayern Munich boss Nagelsmann is the frontrunner to fill Galtier’s shoes in the Parc des Princes dugout, with Foot Mercato reporting that the German is in advanced talks with PSG officials.

Nagelsmann, who has been out of work since being ruthlessly sacked by Bayern in March, could be joined at the club by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

The Qatari ownership have identified Henry as the ideal candidate to serve as Nagelsmann’s assistant, as he previously held the same position alongside Roberto Martinez with the Belgian national team.
