AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini is set to take his first steps into coaching - at Carlo Ancelotti's PSG.

TMW says talks have already opened to take Maldini to Paris in time for preseason training.

Maldini's role will be as a defensive coach, working with the PSG defenders, who have struggled in front of goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu this season.

PSG hope to announce Maldini's appointment before the end of this campaign.
