Paris St Germain are expected to announce Carlo Ancelotti as their new coach at a news conference on Friday.

The Italian, 52, was photographed in Paris on Thursday by newspaper Le Parisien.

The club then released a statement announcing they would hold a news conference in their Parc des Princes ground at 1400 GMT on Friday.

Ancelotti would replace current PSG boss Antoine Kombouare, who has led the club to the top of the French league.

It is a deal that has taken some time to put together, complicated by the fact that 48-year-old Kombouare has yet to be sacked by PSG.

The club’s Qatari owners have lofty ambitions and are keen to bring high-profile names to the French capital.

This is pretty tough on Antoine Kombouare, who was a cult hero at PSG during his playing days, given that he has helped his side to top spot in Ligue 1 as the French league went into it’s winter break.

Clearly the club’s Qatari owners must have been considering replacing the New Caledonia born boss since they took over at the club earlier in the year.

Kombouare spent big in the summer and whilst PSG haven’t been in exhilarating form the Parc des Princes side are three points clear at the top of the table and looking good for their first domestic crown in almost two decades.

Ancelotti had been heavily linked with the post and now appears to be set to a return to management after just over six months out of the game following his two year spell at Chelsea.
