"Koeman Will be the trainer of the Barça in Cádiz". The message from the club and that it was given to know by Sportive World is concise. The Dutch trainer, in spite of the bitter tie in front of the Granada, does not seem that it go to be destituido before the party in question.

To alone 72 hours of the commitment with the Andalusian square, the Catalan group has done a called to the calm with regard to the situation of the míster of the first team, but can not avoid that they begin to sound names of possible substitutes. For the moment, the names that more sound are the ones of Robert Martínez and Xavi Hernández. The two have agreement signed with other clubs and both keep an excellent relation with Jordi Cruyff, responsible of scouting international and that also is part of the team of Joan Laporta.

Xavi already elaborated a project with Jordi Cruyff when Víctor Font launched like presidential candidate. This, and added to his fault of experience like trainer, did that Laporta did not have it between his priorities. All this was when it asked him 15 days to Koeman to decide if it would follow like trainer the past summer.

Nevertheless, it is possible that the situation of the ex Barcelona suffer a change even if Xavi had supported to another presidenciable in the past elections. From the surroundings of Laporta are varied the voices that aim to that the managerial maximum of the Barcelona has to Xavi Hernández like his first option.

Xavi renewed the past summer with the To the Sadd and the club qatarí achieved to stir up the clause that allowed him go out without greater problems in case that it receive a call of the Barça, but his relations with the club keep on being of the best and from his surroundings ensure that the directors of the To the Sadd would not try to prevent a possible exit.

A complex alternative

Another reason by which Laporta seems to prefer to Xavi Hernández, seems that it would be more difficult to hire to Robert Martínez, the current Belgian trainer. And no only because the exit of Koeman would cost him to the club a payment of 12 million euros by compensation, but it also is necessary to add another payment to indemnify to the Belgian federation.

In addition to all the said, also has to consider that in the next days has to contest the semifinal of the Nations League in front of France and this without explaining that we find us in full eliminatory of the world-wide of Qatar.

Other substitutes

Xavi and Robert Martínez are not the only names that sound in the dispatches of the club like possible substitutes of Koeman, there are other names that also have gone in, between them Antonio Conte, Phillip Cocu and Andrea Pirlo. Also it has arrived to sound Erik Have Hag, a trainer that also likes a lot by his work to charge the Ajax, but his possible exit of Amsterdan, and in full season, could be complicated.

A decision complicated

Knowing that the club can not remain in full season without a functional trainer, and that the options that more like could be complicated, Laporta and the managerial want to take his time to decide who could substitute to the Dutch. They know that it will be a risky movement, but do not want to have doubts on the person to which choose, no only for revertir the bad current situation, but also so that it lead the sportive project of face to the future.
