The former Les Bleus international has reportedly rejected an offer to become the national side's new coach and replace his departed friend Laurent Blanc at the helmhere.
Didier Deschamps has turned down the chance to take charge of France's national team, RMC reports.
Noel Le Graet, president of the French football federation (FFF), supposedly contacted the former Olympique de Marseille coach via his assistant Guy Stephan, but the former Les Bleus captain is not interested in the job because of the circumstances under which his friend Laurent Blanc left the position at the weekend.
The FFF wanted the former Bordeaux boss to accept a reduction of his technical staff, as well as insisting on pay cuts for a number of his staff members.
Blanc therefore opted to leave his position as France coach, and Deschamps has no intention to take charge over the vacancy either under Le Graet's conditions.
The 43-year-old Deschamps stepped down as Marseille coach earlier on Monday after a three-year spell in charge of L'OM.
