Journalist Charles Villeneuve is set to be named the new president of Paris Saint Germain football club as a replacement for Simon Tahar, radio station RMC announced on its internet site on Sunday.

Villeneuve, who will be 67 in July, was director of sports at TF1 but quit all his duties at the television station at the end of April.

RMC said: “Charles Villeneuve is set to become the new president of Paris Saint Germain. He will replace Simon Tahar who took over after the departure of Alain Cayzac. This is set to be confirmed at a meeting on Tuesday.”

Other candidates are Guillaume Kuperfils, plus Hersant Michel Moulin whom many tip as the favourite.

PSG, always under the spotlight, had an up and down season, which finished on Saturday with defeat to double winners Lyon in the French Cup final.

Paul Le Guen's team just avoided relegation from the French first division on the final day of the season yet at the end of March won the French League Cup to earn a spot in the UEFA Cup, Europe's second tier club competition.
