Galtier was the manager of OGC Nice when he was linked with the PSG job. He led Nice to a fifth-place finish in Ligue 1, which was slightly less impressive than his second-place finish with Lille in the 2018-19 season.

However, he then went one better and won the Ligue 1 title the next year, beating Paris Saint Germain in the process. It was a huge coup, and he has been on PSG’s radar since then.
