The 58-year-old former Argentina, Chile and Athletic Bilbao coach will officially sign his contract "the next time he comes to Marseille after the season is over," said the club on their website.
Marseille are currently coached by the unpopular Jose Anigo, who replaced Elie Baup on a temporary basis in December.
Bielsa had long been rumoured to be the former European champions first choice to take over from Anigo at the end of this season.
