Blanc is currently in dispute with the French Football Federation over his contract, according to Le Monde.
The former defender, whos current deal expires at the end of Euro 2012, wants to thrash out an extension before the tournament.
However, FFF president Noel Le Graet is keen to postpone talks until after the competition.
Le Guen, who is the coach of the Oman national team, is ready to step in to replace Blanc.
