Barcelona have reportedly identified four potential candidates to replace current manager, Ronald Koeman after the Dutchman has overseen their worst-ever start to a Champions League campaign, while the Catalan giants are already struggling in LaLiga.
There are reports that the club management could be sacked over the course of the international break and here, we take a look at four potential candidates who could replace him at the Nou Camp.
1. Xavi Hernandez
One of the greatest players in Barcelona's history, Xavi Hernandez has always been touted as a potential manager, ever since he left the club in 2015.
The Spaniard is currently managing Al-Sadd and while he has always expressed an interest to return to his former club, their financial issues might not make such an appointment possible - considering that they would need to pay his current employers compensation for his services.
2. Roberto Martinez
Roberto Martinez has been Belgium's head coach since 2016, with the Spaniard citing the philosophy as the great late Johan Cruyff as a major influence on his managerial approach.
This makes him a good candidate at the Nou Camp, though it should be noted that he is yet to lead Belgium's 'Golden Generation' to a trophy at the international level.
3. Antonio Conte
That Antonio Conte is a free agent and without a job at present might come as a surprise to many, considering that he is without doubt one of the best managers in the world.
The Italian however for his part expects a high salary and for the club to sign players who he believes will play according to his style and help win trophies.
4. Andrea Pirlo
Andrea Pirlo's name too is reportedly being considered, which has come as a surprise to many considering that his only season with Juventus was a massive disappointment.
The Italian is a free agent and could be someone who they might approach if the other candidates refuse their advances.
