Luis Enrique is expected to sign as coach of AS Roma this week.
Sky Sport Italia suggest the Barcelona B boss will put pen to paper on a two-year contract with an option for a third season.
"The official word on the matter is imminent and contracts will be signed via fax," said sources close to new Roma President Thomas Di Benedetto.
Before it can be completed, the club must hold a Board of Directors meeting and delegate power to UniCredit manager Roberto Venturini.
It is claimed Luis Enrique will be presented to the media on the same day as President Di Benedetto, which should be at the end of June or early July.
