Nice in advanced talks with New York City FC coach Patrick Vieira

Nice are ready to name New York City FC coach Patrick Vieira new manager.

L'Equipe says Nantes are also interested in the 41-year-old but Nice have stolen a march.

They expect to lose current boss Lucien Favre to Borussia Dortmund and have earmarked Vieira as his replacement.

The report claims that talks are at an advanced stage and Vieira could be unveiled in the coming days.

The Arsenal legend has been in charge of New York City FC since 2016 and before that was part of the coaching team at Manchester City.
