When two-time A-League winning coach Ange Postecoglou decides on his future this week the outcome is expected to be a $1.5 million three-year deal with Melbourne Victory.
The World Game understands Postecoglou rejected a lucrative offer from Japan and will be joined at Victory by Paul Trimboli, who was installed as general manager of Brisbane Roar last June.
Despite leading Brisbane Roar to its second successive championship on Sunday night, Postecoglou appears set to leave the club, at the conclusion of its AFC Champions League commitments, with an announcement to be made within the next few days.
But not before Roar's championship winning team is honoured with a ticker tape parade in the Brisbane CBD on Tuesday morning.
"We'll have some talks with Roar officials this week and I'm sure there will be a resolution this week and we will move on from there," Postecoglou said on Monday.
"Right now I'm enjoying being the coach of the championship-winning side."
Roar became the first A-League club to claim back-to-back championships after a contentious late penalty sealed a 2-1 grand final win over Perth Glory at Suncorp Stadium.
The victory was Postecoglou's fourth national title, after winning successive National Soccer League trophies with South Melbourne late last century.
"Once I complete the celebrations of this one, I will see what my next challenge is," the 46-year-old said.
"It is part of my nature that I am always looking to see what I can do next - that restlessness I guess is what is causing the uncertainty at the moment.
"But that is just the way I am."
Postecoglou was linked heavily with the Victory job before the start of the 2011-2012 campaign and, after a disastrous season on the pitch, the A-League's biggest club will soon have its first choice coach at the helm.
After a brief flirtation with Postecoglou after John van't Schip's decision to leave, Melbourne Heart will name either John Aloisi or Ante Milicic as the Dutchman's successor within the next fortnight.
Both assistants to Van't Schip have impressed during their tenures at Heart with a club spokesman confirming the ex-Socceroos strikers are the only remaining candidates after an exhaustive interview process.
Heart has already shed seven players from its playing roster but has put any further movements on hold until a coach is in place.
Meanwhile, the uncertainty over where Graham Arnold will be coaching next season continues with Central Coast Mariners eager for the one time Australia national team coach to see out the final year of his contract.
Arnold has been touted as Sydney FC's next coach as the financial status of the Mariners remains precarious.
However, a stumbling block to the switch may be Arnold's desire to have his current coaching staff follow him to the Sky Blues.With ex-Socceroos Steve Corica and Zeljko Kalac firmly entrenched in Sydney's set-up it remains to be seen if either party is willing to compromise.
