Former Lille manager Galtier inherited the managerial reins at Parc des Princes following Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking on Tuesday morning.

Galtier says that Neymar will be central to his plans

Christophe Galtier has confirmed that he wants Neymar to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, with the club’s new head coach claiming to have an “obvious idea” of how to bring the best out of the Brazilian superstar. Former Lille manager Galtier inherited the managerial reins at Parc des Princes following Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking on Tuesday morning. The Argentine paid the ultimate price for PSG’s latest failure in the Champions League, which also sparked fresh rumours over Neymar’s future at the club, but Galtier says that the 30-year-old will be central to his plans. PSG are ready to let Neymar go if they receive a suitable offer in the current transfer window, with the forward having largely failed to live up to his world-record €222 million price tag since joining the club from Barcelona in 2017.

According to Christophe, Neymar is a world-class player

A potential return to Camp Nou has been suggested for Neymar, while Premier League trio Chelsea, Manchester United and Newcastle have also been credited with an interest in his services, but Galtier doesn’t want to see such a talented player walk through the exit doors. “Neymar is a world-class player; what coach wouldn’t want him in his squad. We have to find a balance in the team,” the Frenchman said in his first press conference. I have a clear idea of what I want from him. I haven’t met him yet, but I want him to stay with us.” Galtier also commented on Kylian Mbappe’s decision to snub a transfer to Real Madrid to sign a new three-year contract at Parc des Princes.

The new PSG boss is glad that he will have the chance to work with the World Cup winner but doesn’t want him to become overburdened with responsibility due to his superstar status in Paris. “As a Frenchman, I am delighted that he is staying in France: it is good for our league and PSG. I have not had any exchange with him,” Galtier said. “I know what Kylian expects from the team. We know what he brings to the team. We must not give him all the weight of the result. He is a young player on whom I don’t want to add pressure.”
