Seen and read about PSG in the French press this Monday, June 20, 2022. Still negotiations with OGC Nice for the arrival of Christophe Galtier, tensions between Kylian Mbappé and Noël Le Graët, and Renato Sanches the other target for strengthen the Rouge & Bleu midfield.
In today’s edition, The Team gives the latest details on the progress of the file Christophe Galtier to PSG. Indeed, for several days, the coach of OGC Nice is strongly expected to take over from Mauricio Pochettino on the bench of PSG, and whose departure should soon be formalized. However, the club from the capital must agree with the Eaglets to buy out the last two years of the 55-year-old technician’s contract. And according to The Teamthe two clubs are continuing their negotiations and still cannot reach an agreement on this file. “There is a gap of several million euros between the expectations of one (largely higher than the price paid to Lille last summer to buy out the year of contract that the technician had left in the North, estimated between 2 and 3M€) and the proposals of the other. » And in order to move the file forward, many solutions are trying to be found, such as including players in the transaction in order to lower the compensation. Thereby, “the Gym has identified several young people from the Parisian formation who would be likely to interest it. » The Rouge & Bleu board would like to finalize the file for the future coach as soon as possible, and if possible at the start of this week. A happy ending could thus unblock many files and speed up negotiations for the departure of Mauricio Pochettino. But to date, “no agreement has always been reached for severance pay” of the Argentinian coach.
The sports daily notably gave the floor to certain former Ligue 1 protagonists who rubbed shoulders with Christophe Galtier in their career. The former coach of OL, Alain Perrin, had notably trained many teams with the Nice coach in his staff. And according to him, the relationship between Christophe Galtier and his players is considered one of the strengths of the 2021 French champion coach: “He has a knowledge of football and it is necessary to be credible vis-à-vis the guys, but the relationship between Christophe and the players is his strong point. He knows how to get in touch with them, he has a listening ear, an empathy, a dialogue. And, in a group like the PSG, you have to know how to impose yourself with the forms. » Alain Perrin also reports that the current coach of OGC Nice focuses only on the field without leaving energy in the construction of the workforce: “Christophe has always said that he was not an English manager, he takes care of the green rectangle, the preparation of the team, he is not in the constitution of the workforce. Luis Campos will have to have an active role in the management of the locker room to help him. If the locker room is well constituted with a “similar” competition but good alternatives and that the duo works, it will work. But Fields may have to invest more than Lille, to be the link, to be closer to the group, to assume the after-sales service to pass certain choices. »
The Team also refers to the recent tensions between Kylian Mbappe and Noel Le Graet. This Sunday, the striker of PSG dryly responded to the last words of the president of the FFF. Indeed, the boss of French football gave details of their discussions following the last Euro missed by the Blues. The 2018 world champion reacted to a response from his president: “He found that the Federation had not defended him after his missed penalty and the criticism on the networks” and replied via his account Twitter : “Yes finally I explained to him above all well that it was in relation to racism and NO to the penalty. But he considered that there had been no racism… ” Even though Noel Le Graet calmed things down in the process, this last episode shows the tensions between the two protagonists as during the image rights affair. In effect, “Lately, the player said he was shocked by what he considers to be lies and regretted seeing that everything was exposed in the public square”reports THE.
On his side, The Parisian reports that the PSG targets another Portuguese to strengthen his midfield. In addition to Vitinhathe Parisian board, via its football advisor Luis Camposreportedly approached the midfielder from LOSC, Renato Sanches (24 years). One year from the end of his contract, the Lille club is a seller but the PSG will face competition from AC Milan who has a head start in this matter. But the good relationship between Luis Campos and Renato Sanches could play in favor of the Rouge & Bleu. Indeed, in 2019, the Portuguese leader brought the 24-year-old midfielder to the North. “The two men appreciate each other and have therefore exchanged these last few days with a view to a possible arrival at the PSG »reports LP. The former of Bayern Munich is interested in the proposed challenge, but no Parisian offer has yet reached the table of Lille leaders. The latter would be in favor of a sale and would ask for at least €20m for their midfielder.
Nowadays, AC Milan would have already made an offer of €15 million including bonus. In addition, a second Italian club, qualified for the European Cup but whose name has not been filtered, would have made a higher offer than that of the Lombard club. In order to secure the services of Renato Sanches, ” the PSG must meet the requirements of Lille, not so high in view of the player’s potential. » In Lille, the 24-year-old Portuguese had notably evolved under the orders of Christophe Galtierwho is tipped to occupy the position of coach of the PSG.
