The movement on the benches this summer has an almost direct influence on FC Barcelona. Everything indicates that this final day of the League will be the last of Ronald Koeman as coach of Barça and Joan Laporta and his team are already looking for substitutes.
The president was clear stating that a “cycle” has ended. Xavi is the name that has sounded the most in recent days to occupy the Barça bench, but another has also sounded that has now come to light again. This is the Bayern Munich coach, Hansi Flick, who already announced that he would not be the ‘Bavarian’ coach next season, and Nagelsmann entered as his substitute.

A few days ago, ESPN announced that the Barça club had surveyed the German coach, and now RAC 1 joins the rumor mill to affirm that Flick is, at this moment, the number one candidate on Joan Laporta’s list to occupy the Barça bench.
Although he has been pointed out very clearly as a replacement for Joackim Low as German coach as of this summer, hethe reality is that Flick has not yet signed anything with the German federation, and his current illusion is still to be able to take as head coach, the bench of a ‘top’ level club, and that of the Camp Nou is currently a possible destination.
Flick stood out at Bayern with a club philosophy that fits perfectly with Barça DNA, so his adaptation can be immediate and his success rate was almost complete in Munich.
Arteta also sounds
Another of the names that the Barcelona board of directors shuffles is that of Mikel Arteta. The Spanish player already sounded during the Barça elections as one of Joan Laporta’s favorites, and continues in his mind at the moment of truth in which pieces have to be shuffled.
Different media in England already suggest that Arteta can dissociate himself from Arsenal this summer after the Gunners’ improvable season in the Premier League, despite reaching the semifinals of the Europa League. If it were the case that the departure of Arteta, Laporta and Barça would suspect their incorporation to the Barça bench along with the other options.
