Laurent Blanc will quit Paris Saint Germain this week, French radio station Europe 1 said on Monday, quoting the coach's agent.

"Between now and the end of the week PSG and Laurent Blanc will part company," Jean-Pierre Bernes said via Europe 1's Twitter account.

Earlier this month, club president, Nasser al-Khelaifi hinted that he could be considering a change when he described the French Club's season as a failure despite achieving its second successive domestic treble by winning Ligue 1, the French Cup and the League Cup.

Spaniard Unai Emery, who led Sevilla to three straight Europa League titles, is widely reported to be taking over the PSG hot seat.
