PSG Dismiss Links To Appoint Galtier As Pochettino's Replacement

Paris Saint-Germain denied reports on Monday that Nice coach Christophe Galtier will be named the Parisian club's new coach.

News outlets in France claimed the Frenchman had agreed to replace Mauricio Pochettino at Parc de Princes.

According to AFP, a source close to the club claimed: that "numerous discussions are underway".

Argentinian Pochettino, who was appointed in January last year and led the club to the Ligue 1 title in the season just ended, has another 12 months remaining on his contract.

French newspapers have reported however that Pochettino and the club to come to an agreement that would see the Argentine leave the French capital.

If he does make the move to Paris, Galtier would reunite with Louis Campos, PSG's recently appointed football advisor.

Earlier this month, the French press linked former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane with the position, with PSG's Qatari owners desperate to win the Champions League.

France World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe signed a new deal with the Parisians last month, choosing against joining the Spanish giants.

The new French top-flight season begins on the weekend of 6-7 August.

A week before that, champions PSG will play French Cup winners Nantes in the Trophee des Champions, the traditional curtain-raiser to the French season, in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
