Blanc Expecting to Sign as PSG Coach

MOST COMMENTED

The sports network beIN Sport, which is owned by Paris Saint-Germain owner Qatari Sports Investments, claimed on Friday that an agreement has been reached that will make former France coach Laurent Blanc the Parisian club’s head coach on a two-year deal. While that claim was subsequently denied by Blanc's agent Jean-Pierre Bernes, who said negotiations were still ongoing, the former Barcelona and Manchester United defender confirmed Sunday that he is speaking to PSG today and expects to reach an agreement.

"I'll be in Paris on Monday for discussions,” Blanc told French daily Le Parisien. There is a good chance that I will sign. I cannot say much more for now, we'll know more later in the week. PSG is a great opportunity, it is a very good club. This is very interesting."

If indeed Blanc is named the Ligue 1 champion’s coach, it would allow current coach Carlo Ancelotti to go to Real Madrid, as he has repeatedly said is his wish.

Separately, reports in England claim that Blanc’s first signing as PSG coach will be Chelsea defender David Luiz, who is apparently not in Blues coach Jose Mourinho’s long-term plans.
