Paris: Former France captain Didier Deschamps is in talks with the French Football Federation (FFF) about becoming the national team's new manager, a source close to the talks revealed Saturday.
"We are in full negotiation. It's a step further, but it's not yet an outcome. We are in the phase of entry into talks. If there is an outcome and an agreement, I think it won't be before tomorrow (Sunday)," the source added.
The development comes a week after Laurent Blanc's decision to step down from the post following two years in charge after being unable to reach an agreement with FFF president Noel Le Graet on a new contract .
