According to L'Equipe, the experienced manager tops a shortlist for the Marseille position, with an appointment expected to be made in the next 48 hours.

Peru and Morocco are also believed to be interested in securing the services of Bielsa, but it is understood that 'El Loco' wants a return to club management.
