Well in todays huge shock turns out PSG have sacked Poch and appointed Christophe Galtier to replace him.
Galtier joins from Nice having only joined them last summer the season before he was in charge at Lille who beat PSG to the French title.
Leonardo was also sacked as Sporting Director this summer and was replaced by Luis Campos who worked with Galtier at Lille and previously at Monaco. He oversaw the construction of the two squads that have beaten PSG to the title over the last decade so you could argue this is a clever appointment.
The chairman has suggested he wants to bring an end to the bling bling era of PSG and wants the club to focus on securing the best young French players and young players from the rest of the world.
The big talk seems to be the club would be willing to listen to offers for Neymar they'd quite happily move him on this summer but he's only just been given a new deal which had an extension clause that activated this summer to extend it to 2027. He's on 30m a year, has just turned 30 and his injury record in recent seasons is worrying so not going to be a lot of takers for this guy.
