It is understood that Sinaloa must strike a deal with the his current European club in order to secure Maradona's services.

The Argentine, who was in the middle of some controversies at the World Cup in Russia, has managed five previous teams.

He had short spells with Argentine sides including Mandiyu de Corrientes and Racing Club before being named national team coach.

The 57-year-old led his country to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and oversaw 19 games of the Seleccion as manager between November 2008 and July 2010.

He took his managerial craft to Al Wasl manager in the United Arab Emirates, but won just seven of his 22 games in charge.

He left the Middle East based side in July 2012 but it was not until five years later he went back into management when he took over at Fujairah in April last year.

Maradona enjoyed an impressive 52.3 per cent win rate but left after one year in charge before being appointed president at Dynamo Brest.

But he now looks set to take over the club Pep Guardiola finished his playing career at in 2006 and he certainly has a job on his hands.

The second divsison side have drawn three and lost three of their six league games so far this season, scoring just twice as they remain in 13th position.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported Diego Maradona has taken over as chairman of Belarus soccer club Dynamo Brest on Monday after signing a three-year contract.

The Argentine legend said he hoped the country's President Alexander Lukashenko would become a fan after agreeing to take charge of the club that was rescued from bankruptcy two years ago.
