PSG: does it get stuck with Pochettino, Galtier ready to play with three defenders?


The leaders of PSG have so far not reached an agreement with Mauricio Pochettino regarding his departure. The Parisians therefore cannot formalize the signing of Christophe Galtier. The French technician would nevertheless already work on the contours of his future team and would consider playing with three axial defenders.

In today’s edition, The Team gives insight into the talks that are currently taking place between PSG and Mauricio Pochettino. According to his information, the Parisian club has not yet reached an agreement with the Argentinian, concerning his departure. The technician had specified that he would stay next season, and it seems that he was informed quite late of the eviction decision. Eight days from the resumption of training, the situation is worrying. The daily indeed reveals that no positive sign has appeared in the last hours. However, the presence of the 2021-2022 coach prevents the arrival of the one supposed to succeed him.

A scheme better suited to the profile of Messi?

The agreement seems to have been found for several days with Christophe Galtier. If his arrival still seems far from being formalized, the native of Marseille has already started his work with Luis Campos. The resumption of training is indeed set for July 4, even if the internationals benefit from additional days. The technician would think about recruitment, as well as the tactics he will favor during the season. Rather than a 4-4-2, Christophe Galtier could opt for a three-defender scheme that would maximize Lionel Messi’s potential. However, nothing would be stopped.

On the recruitment side, the names of Milan Skriniar (Inter Milan), Vitinha (Porto) and Seko Fofana (Lens) would remain relevant. The Portuguese should in particular pass his medical examination in the coming days. His arrival should materialize for an amount of around 40 million euros.

The situation of Christophe Galtier has repercussions on OGC Nice. The Aiglons cannot formalize the signing of Lucien Favre either…
