Laurent Blanc expected to sign a two year deal to manage French champions PSG.
Former Bordeaux and France manager Laurent Blanc is set to be announced as PSG manager.
The 47-year-old has reportedly agreed terms at the Parc de Princes and will join the Ligue 1 champions on a two-year deal, according to the French sports network beIN Sport.
Blanc has been out of football for just under a year, since resigning from the French national team following their quarter-final exit at last summer’s European Championships.
The former centre half will replace ex-Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti, who is now widely expected to take over the managerial vacancy at Real Madrid left by Jose Mourinho.
A statement by the PSG owners on the beIN Sport website said: “An agreement was reached today between Paris St Germain and Laurent Blanc for him to become the new coach of the capital club.
“An agreement between the former coach of the France team and PSG was reached for two years. It is planned that he will sign the contract next week.”
Earlier this week, ex-England manager Fabio Capello had been widely speculated to be in pole position for the job, although both him and Tottenham boss Andre Villas Boas rejected any advancements from the French club.
