Deschamps in France talks

The French Football Federation (FFF) has confirmed it is in negotiation with Didier Deschamps over the vacant France coaching position.

Newspaper France Football had earlier reported 43-year-old Deschamps would be officially unveiled on Saturday, but the FFF has refused to reveal the outcome of their talks.

“Noel Le Graet, president of the French Football Federation, and Didier Deschamps met in Paris on Saturday. They engaged in a discussion on possible methods of cooperation for the post of coach of the France team,” an FFF statement read.

Deschamps is expected to make a decision in the coming week after stepping down as Marseille coach last Monday.

The former Juventus midfielder, a FIFA World Cup winner with France in 1998, had initially said he would not take the national team post, but after a week of consideration he may be ready to perform a u-turn.

France face a difficult task to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, having been paired in the same UEFA qualifying group as reigning European and world champions Spain.

Laurent Blanc resigned as France manager following their quarter-final exit from Euro 2012 last month, at the hands of eventual winners Spain.
