Fabio Capello: Has helped Russia qualify for the World Cup

Fabio Capello is close to signing a new contract with the Russian Football Union, according to sports minister Vitaly Mutko.

The former England boss has led Russia to the 2014 World Cup, topping their qualifying group ahead of Portugal.

And the 67-year-old's son, Pier Filippo Capello, is expected in Moscow next week to finalise a four-year deal which is expected to be signed by December 6, the day of the World Cup draw.

"I can say that an agreement in principle between the coach and the RFU has been reached," Mutko said.

"As far as I know, his lawyer will come to Moscow on November 21-22 and everything should be settled.

"There are several options for the date of the signing of the new agreement but probably everything will be officially formalised after the draw for the World Cup finals."
