The Barcelona won two of La Liga’s opening two games of the season under Ronald Koeman when they were held to a draw by Athletic Bilbao and a point in the 90th minute against Granada.

Ronald Koeman’s side also suffered a convincing defeat by Bayern Munich in this year’s UEFA Champions League opener, with Robert Lewandowski scoring in the Camp Nou next to Thomas Muller’s goal in a 3-0 win over the Bayern Munich side, which contributed to further tests for the Dutch manager.

According to Goal, the Catalan giants are now preparing for life after Ronald Koeman and are currently raising the $ 10 million they will need to compensate their former player if they fire him.

The report also suggests that the election preferred by party president Joan Laporta as the long-term manager is Roberto Martinez, who has been in charge of the Belgian National Team since 2016, which is responsible for their rise to the top of the international list.

Alternatively, Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandes was also honored with the work, and Jordi Cruijff – Johan’s son – is another way to promote, as he currently serves as assistant director of sports at Camp Nou.

Meanwhile, Football Italia cites former Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo and league manager Antonio Conte both seeking the job, having left Juventus and Inter Milan respectively this summer.
