SEVILLE, Spain (AP) — Sevilla says it has nearly reached an agreement with the Argentine soccer federation to let Jorge Sampaoli coach his country's national team.

The Spanish club says "this outline of an agreement depends on the writing and delivery of relevant documents, which must be signed by both parties on June 1."

Sampaoli has one more season remaining on his contract.

Sevilla says that Sampaoli's buyout clause of 1.5 million euros ($1.68 million) was "not argued about" and that "both sides are satisfied with the agreement."

Sampaoli had said that he wanted to coach his country's national team after leading Sevilla to a fourth-place finish in Spain.

Argentina fired predecessor Edgardo Bauza in April.
