I may continue after 2022 with the agreement of my president,"
Deschamps told RTL.
"People have to want to keep me and for that you need results. I will do something else at some point, but I am thriving in this role of manager.
"I have a contract until December 2022, but today I am not thinking of becoming a club coach. I am very happy, all the conditions are met."
Deschamps guided his side in 112 games during his time at the helm, which started in 2012 after Laurent Blanc resigned. He has delivered 74 victories, 18 defeats and drew 20 matches.
France will go against Bulgaria in their last friendly before the Euro 2020 starts for them on June 15 against Germany.
