PSG finished just a point clear of Lens to retain their Ligue 1 crown, but failed to win the Coupe de France or advance beyond the round of 16 in the Champions League.
Okay.ng has learnt that Julian Nagelsmann is the front-runner to replace Galtier in the Parc des Princes hotseat.

French paper L’Equipe reported last week that talks between PSG and Nagelsmann had reached an “advanced stage”.
Their report added that the German wants to bring Arsenal legend Thierry Henry with him to Paris.
Galtier’s PSG future appeared to be hanging by a thread from the moment his side lost to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
The French champions were meekly beaten 3-0 on aggregate by Bayern, then managed by Nagelsmann.
Last month, Galtier begged for more time as PSG boss.
Defending his credentials, he said: “I deserve a second season at Paris Saint-Germain.
“I repeat it once again because no one wants to hear it but it was a very special season.
“We had to stay the course even when we thought everyone had their heads under water.
“I pay tribute to my players who have not given up. I am very happy and I don’t want us to trivialise [this title win]!”
Galtier began his managerial career with Saint-Etienne, managing Les Verts for eight years between 2009 and 2017.
He subsequently took charge of Lille, inspiring them to their shock Ligue 1 title win in 2021.
A year at Nice followed, where he guided Les Aiglons to the Coupe de France final, before landing the PSG job.
Galtier, 56, won the Ligue 1 title by a single point.
