After Roberto Martinez's cancellation, FC Barcelona has apparently chosen a new preferred candidate for the coaching position. As reported by the radio station 'Catalunya Radio', it is Erik ten Hag from Ajax Amsterdam. According to the report, President Joan Laporta is a big fan of the Dutchman, as he plays in a 4-3-3 formation and learned from then head coach of the first team, Pep Guardiola, during his time as coach of the second team at Bayern Munich Has.

The problem is that ten Hag is still under contract with the Dutch record champions until 2023. In addition to the 51-year-old, Xavi Hernández (Al-Sadd SC) and Andrea Pirlo (most recently Juventus Turin) are considered possible successors to Ronald Koeman. The Dutchman is still officially Barca coach, but according to Spanish media reports, his dismissal is a done deal.
