Nagelsmann to start fresh as PSG coach.
Julian Nagelsmann, the “young master” who was shockingly sacked by Bayern Munich, is reportedly in talks with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
PSG won their 11th Ligue 1 title this season. However, coach Christophe Galtier, who was appointed ahead of the season, is expected to be given his notice soon. Despite winning the league title, they only managed to beat Reims by one point. A 2-3 defeat at the hands of Clermont in the final will not go down well. A round of 16 exit in the Coupe de France was also a shock, and an early exit from the all-important Champions League was the final straw. Allegations of racism during his time in Nice were a further setback.
PSG needed to find a new manager quickly, with longtime favorite Zinedine Zidane, AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho, and former Spain national team coach Luis Enrique among the leading candidates.
However, local outlet FootMercato reports that Nagelsmann is the top candidate and has already spoken to the PSG hierarchy, with further talks expected to take place.
Nagelsmann is just 35 years old and has been on the rise since taking over the reins at top German club Bayern Munich. However, the Bavarians, who wanted to bring in Thomas Tuchel, made the shock decision to fire Nagelsmann in March.
Nagelsmann became a “man in demand. Chelsea, Tottenham, and Real Madrid were among the favorites. Chelsea, of course, hired Mauricio Pochettino, and Tottenham backed out because they felt they would have to pay Munich a hefty compensation package to bring Nagelsmann back. Real are also likely to stay with Carlo Ancelotti.토토사이트
That didn’t mean Nagelsmann had nowhere else to go. PSG came calling. PSG are the richest club in the world, and it would cost more than £10 million in compensation to bring in Nagelsmann, who is currently on the payroll of Munich, which is not a huge obstacle for PSG.
Meanwhile, the outlet claims that if Nagelsmann takes the reins, he will bring in ‘legend’ Thierry Henry as a coach.
