Gabriel Heinze reportedly in talks to become new Marseille coach


Gabriel Heinze is reportedly the main candidate in line to become the new Olympique de Marseille boss.

The former Manchester United, Real Madrid and Marseille player could be the one to replace André Villa-Boas at the club. With Andoni Zubiazarreta as sporting director of the club, per a report by L’Équipe in France, André Villa-Boas could also be on his way out. The Portuguese has reportedly already informed the club that he has decided to leave.

Per a report by Tutto Mercato Web, the 42 year old Argentine, currently managing Velez in Argentina, has been contacted by the club.

Heinze spent two seasons playing for Marseille, from 2009 to 2011 where he won one league title and two Coupe de Ligue titles.

    A long-time target of Pep Guardiola, the midfielder is set to cost around £15 million ($18m) and favours a move to the Etihad after seeing Carlos Tevez star there.
