CHRISTOPHE GALTIER is favourite for the PSG job after significant activity in the betting markets.
The Frenchman, 55, was available at 6/1 at the beginning of the week and trailed previous frontrunner Zinedine Zidane.
However, bookmakers Betfair have SLASHED his price to 4/11 to replace Mauricio Pochettino in Paris.
Pochettino won Ligue 1 by 15 points during his first full season in charge at the Parc des Princes.
But he’s been unable to repair the damage of their Champions League last-16 collapse to eventual winners, Real Madrid.
ESPN claim his departure was agreed on Wednesday — although no official announcement has yet been made.
PSG have, however, announced the arrival of Luis Campos, who has joined the club as their new football advisor.
PSG next manager
- Christophe Galtier – 4/11
- Zinedine Zidane – 5/2
- Massimiliano Allegri – 16/1
- Roberto Mancini – 20/1
- Thiago Motta – 20/1
- Sergio Conceicao – 20/1
- Ruben Amorim – 20/1
- Jose Mourinho – 25/1
- Julen Lopetegui – 25/1
- Gian Piero Gasperini – 25/1
Campos will decide which fringe players can leave the club, and who will lead them into the 2022-23 campaign.
The 57-year-old worked alongside Galtier before their Ligue 1 success and wants to be reunited in the French capital.
Zinedine Zidane is next in the market at 5/2.
Reports earlier this week claimed that a deal was close to being agreed with the club’s owners particularly keen on Zidane.
But other reports suggest the 49-year-old wants to manager the French national side when Didier Deschamps exits the role.
Massimiliano Allegri, who is said to have held talks with Campos recently, is further back at 16/1, ahead of 20/1 chances Roberto Mancini, Thiago Motta, Sergio Conceicao and Ruben Amorim.
