Recently, it was thought that PSG was working with Zinedine Zidane for the position of the new manager, but it seems that the situation has made PSG change its decision. A while back, Paris Saint-Germain was reportedly in contact with Zidane about replacing Christophe Galtier as the manager.
However, according to the latest updates from the Spanish newspaper El Nacional, the former Real Madrid coach is no longer the top target for the Paris-based club. Instead, Pep Guardiola is now the favored choice of chairman Al-Khelaifi.
According to reports, former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola was never on PSG’s radar. However, the recent and unexpected punishment faced by his current club, Manchester City, has created an opportunity for the Parisian club to pursue him.
PSG has reportedly contacted Guardiola’s representative and made a huge offer to the Spanish manager. The club is closely monitoring the situation at Etihad Stadium. It is believed that Paris Saint-Germain is making a full effort to secure the services of Guardiola.
PSG is completely convinced by what Guardiola has achieved at Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Manchester City. His impressive resume has made the French club see him as a safer option than Zinedine Zidane.
In terms of Coach Galtier, the French manager is currently under immense pressure due to the poor performance of Paris Saint-Germain in recent times. After being eliminated from the French Cup by Marseille, the team suffered a heavy 1-3 defeat to Monaco in Ligue 1 over the weekend.
It is known that the “deadline” for Christophe Galtier is likely to be in two matches against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League. If PSG is unable to advance to the quarter-finals, it will surely be the “end” of the 56-year-old’s career at Paris’s strongest club.
And it seems that everything is not going well for the former Lille skipper as superstar Lionel Messi has suffered an injury and is likely to miss the showdown with the Bavarians.
