FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta is interested in bringing in Jurgen Klopp from Liverpool. The German manager recently also announced his departure as a coach for Liverpool. He will leave at the end of the season but will take a year off from football. Laporta is looking at European coaches that could help, like Jose Mourinho and Thiago Motta. One name that isn't considered for the job is Rafael Marquez. Marquez is currently the Barcelona Atletic coach and was an option since he is at the club currently.

Marquez spoke about the Barcelona job and admitted to wanting to take over and become the new manager. Marquez said, "I will try to continue preparing myself so that when the time comes, I am as well prepared as possible. You can't say no to an opportunity like this, and if it comes, I will try to be available and try to do my best." This comment didn't go well with the Barcelona board, and they definitely don't have him in their plans to coach the first team next season.
