Official | OGC Nice hire Christophe Galtier as manager

Ligue 1 side OGC Nice on Monday night confirmed the hire of French manager Christophe Galtier following weeks of negotiations with Lille about acquiring his services.

The Ligue 1 title-winning manager joins the INEOS project in a major coup for Les Aiglons and is understood to have signed a 3-year deal with the club.

OGC Nice paid Lille just under €5m in order to purchase the final year of Galtier’s contract – sources at Lille tell Get French Football News that the deal is the biggest ever inter-Ligue 1 transfer fee for a manager.
