Arsene Wenger is set to accept an offer from FIFA.
The former Arsenal boss has not been directly involved with the professional game since he left the Gunners last year.
Wenger has recently hinted that he would welcome a return, providing the right offer came along.
And ESPN report he has accepted a role with the world governing body as a technical director.
The 69-year-old remains keen on stepping back into management, but will take on the post at FIFA while he waits for a suitable offer.
