This news has generated an authentic stir and the sportive direction of the club is evaluating candidates, trascending already more than a possible nominated like substitute of the egarense. Nevertheless, the list of nominated follows opened and has not done an official announcement by part of the club, by what is likely that there are more names that arise in the future.

Between the surprising names that have mentioned , stands out the one of José Mourinho. In spite of his past like trainer of the Real Madrid and the countless controversial that had with the Barça, the media 'ABC' informs that it could be considered like candidate to direct to the Barcelona cast. It costs to remember that in the actuality the Portuguese finds like free agent, this occurred afterwards that it was sacked of the Rome the past 16 January.

Jorge Mendes would be key in the union 'Mou'-Barça

Equally, it leaves clear that Mendes would be had to mediate to resolve any economic problem that could arise, since the luso is known for being one of the better trainers paid (earned 9,2 M€ in the 'Wolf') and the Barça does not seem to be in position to do big outlays to financial level.

In front of this, would be necessary to evaluate if finally José Mourinho, the one who also has a past in the group culé like assistant of Bobby Robson (1996-97) and Louis go Gaal (1997-00), turns into a real option for the club.

His contracting would mark a remarkable change in the direction that follows the philosophy of game 'cruyffiana' that is used to handle in the picture of the City Condal.

Aunado To this, arises the problem of his narrow bond with the Real Madrid and his controversial record against the Barcelona team. In the imaginary community, remember him actions like the aggression to Tito Vilanova, that only is the tip of the 'iceberg'. Also they add other questions, like the despise to the Champions League won in his moment by Pep Guardiola and the diverse controversial and tensions that caused in the Classical. These actions would represent a considerable challenge so that the Portuguese attain to win the acceptance of the fans in case that finally it assume the rudder of the FC Barcelona.
