Julio Grondona, president of Argentina's football association, has only said that he plans to meet with Maradona in person Monday.
The golden boy of Argentina's 1986 world champions, Maradona coached a team that barely qualified for this year's World Cup in South Africa, where they were stopped in a 4-0 humiliation against Germany. He appeared distraught after the quarter-final loss, which was considered a disappointment by many observers at home.
The 49-year-old Maradona reportedly agreed in principle to a four-year extension in a telephone conversation with Grondona. That contract would keep the mercurial coach at the helm through the 2014 World Cup in neighbouring Brazil.
