However, Joan Laporta has a big obstacle in the form of Flick. Who has already promised to succeed Joachim Low as Germany’s national team manager following this summer’s European Championship.
According to RAC1, the Blaugrana would benefit from the lack of a contractual conflict. Because Flick has yet to sign a deal with the German Football Association (DFB).
The 56-year-old has, however, given his word to the DFB, and it would take a very remarkable offer to persuade him to change his mind.
Flick’s name has come up in the Barcelona board’s discussions. Because they do not believe the time is appropriate to bring in Xavi Hernandez. And there is no likelihood of Xavi being the Blaugrana coach next season at this time.
Other choices also seem too problematic since Erik ten Hag recently renewed his contract with Ajax. And bringing in Jurgen Klopp from Liverpool would be too costly at this moment for Barcelona.
Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman remains Barcelona’s manager. And he has not informed him that he would not be back next season because of no decision-making.
Although Laporta still has faith in Koeman, it may come down to whether he believes he can find a better choice.
Time is running out, though, since Barcelona has a lot of work to do this summer, and announcing their head coach for the coming season must be one of the first items on their agenda, even if it confirms Koeman’s retention. Flick to Barcelona in the replacement of Koeman.
