FC Barcelona begins to move to find the ideal replacement for Ronald Koeman on the benches and Roberto Martínez is one of the two great options
Although Joan Laporta and Ronald Koeman kept a brief meeting in the flight of return to Barcelona, after the 'prick' in Cádiz, and signed an agreement of peace, the continuity of the trainer is all less ensured. In fact, it boasts that the party in front of the Raise, this Sunday in the Camp Nou, will be the 'bullet' final of the Dutch. The intention of the club is to cease his services sooner that late and, although it will not be because it will have to fulfil his sanction, the club trusts that, at least, the players can raise head and "disguise" the ghosts of the last parties.
In the meantime, in the offices try to have all smart in case that Ronald Koeman was sacked. Joan Laporta have done a deep cleaning in the list of candidates to occupy the charge of Barcelona trainer and remained reduced in two: Roberto Martínez, seleccionador of Low Countries, and Xavi Hernández, trainer of the To the-Sadd and legend of the team. Regarding the first, the newspaper 'Goal' has informed that the club blaugrana has established the first contacts with him, that would be more than interested in recalar in the Camp Nou in brief, but the situation is not so simple.
The half explains that the Barça has kept conversations with the seleccionador Belgian, but that these "can not consider like a negotiation to the use". Martínez keeps a big relation with several members of the Catalan entity and is a factor that influences in his intention to listen to the Barcelona. Jordi Cruyff, director of the scouting international, for example,is elpadrino of one of the daughters of Bob, as well as Roberto is it of one of his children, Julen. It is not a 'data' essential, but yes that reveals the good relation that keep both, by what the communication is direct.
The true is that from the Camp Nou have explained him that they follow him from does time and that he is the first option of the club to assume the charge that in brief would leave Ronald Koeman. Thus, after listening all the intentions of the Barcelona, 'Bob' would have transmitted to the Belgian federation of football the possibilities to leave to Can Barça. Nevertheless, it does not plan to sack of the selection before the dispute of the Final Four of the Nations League, in which they will confront to France on 7 October and, if they win, would play the final the 10 or directly the third/fourth place.
The Barça would have to do an outlay
Like this then , the club would have to expect two weeks to be able to advance in a negotiation. To be like this, would not be a traspaso free. The Barcelona entity would have to pay to the Federation a compensation that rondará the 1,5 million euros. In any case, from 'Goal' stand out that the figure varies "according to the moment in which it was paid and the sportive results that have to by half".
