Paris Saint-Germain announced manager Mauricio Pochettino was fired Tuesday after one-and-a-half seasons leading the French powerhouse.
ESPN reported PSG reached an agreement with Nice worth around €10 million ($10.3 million) for Christophe Galtier, who led Lille to the 2020-21 Ligue 1 title, to take over as its new head coach.
The Parisians won the Ligue 1 championship for the eighth time in the past 10 years last term, but their results in other competitions fell short of expectations.
They suffered a 1-0 loss to Lille in the season-opening Trophee des Champions, and they were eliminated in the round of 16 of both the UEFA Champions League and Coupe de France. It marked the first time since 2012-13 they didn't win at least two trophies.
Pochettino, who previously managed Espanyol, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur, compiled a 55-15-14 record during his time at the Parc des Princes.
