Former Argentina boss Jorge Sampaoli has agreed to become manager of Brazil giants Santos.
No other details have been confirmed at this stage, aside from the fact Sampaoli has accepted a proposal to lead Santos in the 2019 season.
A contract is set to be signed this weekend
Santos will be Sampaoli’s first club job in South America since he led Universidad de Chile to three League titles between 2010 and 2012, along with the Copa Sudamericana in 2011.
In 2018, Santos finished the Serie A season in 10th place, meaning they missed out on place in the Copa Libertadores and will compete in the Sudamericana next season.
