Roberto Martinez is the leading contender to replace Ernesto Valverde as the next manager of Barcelona, according to a report.
Belgium boss Roberto Martinez is reportedly being eyed up by Barcelona as a possible replacement for Ernesto Valverde.
Barca are believed to be weighing up whether to part company with Valverde following a disastrous end to the season.
The Catalan giants lost 4-0 to Liverpool in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final to crash out 4-3 on aggregate, before going down 2-1 to Valencia in last weekend’s Copa del Rey final.
Should Barca chiefs opt for a change in the dugout, RAC1 claims that Martinez is the leading candidate to take over.
Martinez has spent the past three years in charge of Belgium and guided the Red Devils to the semi-finals of the World Cup last year, where they were beaten by tournament winners France.
The former Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Everton manager would supposedly be open to quitting his current role if the Barca post becomes available.
