Paris Saint-Germain could be heading toward a managerial change sooner rather than later. Manager Christophe Galtier has been unable to get the squad out of this terrible form since the return of club football after the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
As a result, reports are surfacing over a possible replacement. Foot Mercato reported on Tuesday, citing sources, that former Chelsea and PSG manager Thomas Tuchel is the priority of president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

The Evening Standard revealed on Monday the conditions that Tuchel would consider a return to the French capital, where he took PSG to the UEFA Champions League final in 2020.
Daily discussions between Al-Khelaifi and Tuchel. Contact also with his entourage. However, the Emir of Qatar would like former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane to take over the position, but the issue is that the French tactician won’t work with sporting advisor Luis Campos.
It will be interesting to see if a move is made before PSG’s Champions League second-leg contest against Bayern Munich on March 8 at the Allianz Arena.
The French giants have two more Ligue 1 fixtures and Tuchel has experience taking over midseason as he did so with Chelsea, who led them to the 2021 Champions League trophy.
