The 53-year-old accepted the job verbally at the weekend, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, and will be returning to club management for the first time since leaving Barca in 2017.

PSG set to announce appointment of Luis Enrique
The French champions had held talks with Julian Nagelsmann and Mikel Arteta but it is the Arsenal manager’s Spanish compatriot Enrique that has been given the nod by PSG sporting director Jorge Campos.
Enrique has wanted to get back into management ever since stepping down as Spain’s boss following the nation’s exit from last winter’s World Cup at the round of 16 stage to the hands of Morocco in a penalty shootout.
The former Real Madrid and Barcelona player had held talks with Napoli about becoming their next manager following the departure of Luciano Spalletti but a deal to take over did not progress past the preliminary stages.
