Although Christophe Galtier has publicly stated that he intends to remain as manager of Paris Saint-Germain next season, his position has become increasingly precarious in the aftermath of an early Champions League exit and some mediocre league form.

The former Saint-Étienne coach would only stay in Paris for his second and final season. It will apply only if the club’s management were unable to secure their targets for the dugout. Galtier, still creating focus on leading the team to a record-breaking 11th league championship. But he hasn’t been informed of any plans to fire him as a result.

Lus Campos, the club’s sporting advisor, is likely to have less influence in naming the new manager than he did when he first arrived last year, bringing his former Lille colleague Galtier with him. The Qatari owners intend to have a greater say in the proceedings this time, though they will be careful not to step on Campos’ toes. As of now, the Portuguese director is not officially looking for a new coach, but he is keeping an eye out for potential candidates.

Didier Deschamps’ extension ended his chances of managing the French national team just recently. The owners now think they have a better chance of bringing in the legendary midfielder, according to L’Équipe.

Club president Nasser Al Khelaifi has met with the owners to discuss the proposed changes. The owners seems to keep eying on Thiago Motta. The former PSG midfielder has impressed at Bologna this season. But there are doubts about his desire to work with Luis Campos. José Mourinho would be more in line with what the Sporting Advisor is looking for. Mourinho, the Roma manager is open to offers – but the Qatari owners want a calming figure after a turbulent year. Meanwhile, Marcelo Gallardo, who was in the running last year but chose to stay with River Plate, is now a free agent and could be enticed.
