FC Barcelona would be absolutely immersed in the plans for the next season once they already know that Xavi Hernandez won’t continue in the club at the end of the season, which would have forced the president Joan Laporta to search for a new manager in the market to develop a new project at the institution.

In his research, the Catalan dirigeant would have already made some discards, and he would be now focused in negotiating with just a couple of managers according to the latest information appearing in the Catalan sporting journal Sport, revealing the current target list of Barça’s boss.

On this list, the first manager to have been dropped would be the Italian manager and former Barcelona player Thiago Motta, who will remain in Serie A as the manager of Bologna, while Jürgen Klopp and Ruben Amorim would have also turned down as options for the Catalan club.

In this sense, and according to the information given by Sport, Laporta would have still held conversations for ex Bayern’s Hansi Flick and Brighton's coach Roberto de Zerbi, but a new and surprising name would have been added to the list.
