Marseille boss Deschamps admits Roma talks

Olympique Marseille coach Didier Deschamps is in talks with AS Roma. Deschamps is one of the hot favourites to take over when American investor Thomas Di Benedetto becomes the new President.

"I am considering my future," said the former Juventus boss. "It's not a question of money, as that is not a decisive element for me. What counts is the sporting project.

"If I said that there hadn't been contact with Roma, you'd laugh at me. Coaches are sought after just as much as players during the summer.

"The only thing I can tell you is that I haven't made any commitments and will wait to see how the situation evolves so I can have a clear picture before deciding."
