Out-of-work Thomas Tuchel is being lined up for a return to Paris Saint-Germain with boss Christophe Galtier struggling to get a tune out of the super team, reports say.
The Parisians have lost their last three outings – including Tuesday’s Champions League round of 16 first leg AT HOME to Bayern Munich.
And according to RMC Sport, boss Galtier’s position at PSG has weakened.
The Frenchman, regarded as one of the country’s current best coaches only behind France World Cup-winning boss Didier Deschamps, will remain coach of the Parisian club up to March 8.
That gives the ex-Lille manager the second leg against Bayern.
However, after that, his position will be determined by results.

The report states that there were concerns in the summer before Galtier joined, whether he could lead their dressing room filled with football’s biggest personalities.
Fast forward six months, and those same questions are shared by the decision-makers in Doha, Qatar.
A name being touted as Galtier’s replacement is Tuchel.
The 49-year-old has history with the Parisians, managing the team between 2018 and 2020.

He won two Ligue 1 titles and guided the team to their first-ever Champions League final, which they lost to Bayern in 2020.
Tuchel was dismissed that year, joined Chelsea and won the Champions League in 2021.
But he has been out of work since late last year after being sacked by Chelsea’s new ownership, headed by Todd Boehly.
His departure came shortly after a summer transfer splurge, which saw the Blues blow close to £300million on eight high-profile players.
.PSG also remain big admirers of Zinedine Zidane, who they were keen on after dropping Mauricio Pochettino in the summer.
The France football icon has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid in 2021.
Zidane was said to be wanting to take over from Deschamps as France boss post-World Cup.
However, France have confirmed Deschamps will lead the team at Euro 2024 – a competition he hasn’t won as a manager.
