Mercato PSG: Galtier on his way to Saudi Arabia?
Christophe Galtier, who is still negotiating his departure from PSG, could soon bounce back in Saudi Arabia.
PSG have yet to make Christophe Galtier's departure official, but it's only a matter of time before they do. The French coach has been negotiating an amicable termination of his contract with his employer for several days now, and PSG have already found his successor in Luis Enrique.
Once rumoured to be close to Napoli, who finally opted for Rudi Garcia, Christophe Galtier could bounce back to Saudi Arabia. According to Spanish journalist Manu Sainz, the French coach is negotiating with the powerful Saudi clubAl-Hilal, who have just recruited Kalidou Koulibaly and Ruben Neves.

Mourinho and Allegri turned down Al-Hilal
According to Fabrizio Romano, Al-Hilal had approached Jose Mourinho with an offer of €30m net per year, but the Portuguese turned down the lucrative offer to stay at AS Roma. The Saudi club were also turned down by Massimiliano Allegri, who preferred to stay at Juventus.
Will Galtier be the lucky one? A few days ago, Foot Mercato reported that Saudi clubAl Shabab were interested in the French coach. Logically, we should know more once the Marseille native has officially left Paris.
