Barcelona linked with Rodgers

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is being lined-up as a potential replacement for Gerardo Martino at Barcelona.

The Sunday People claims Martino is not expected to return to the Nou Camp next season, and the Spanish giants have their eyes on a possible replacement.

Rodgers has emerged as a candidate for the La Liga champions, according to the report, with the Spanish-speaking Northern Irishman only contracted to the Reds for another season.

Barca will be keeping an eye on upcoming contract talks between the two parties, although the Liverpool owners have been slow to get the ball rolling on a new deal for the former Swans chief at Anfield.

Rodgers has made a huge impact on Merseyside since joining in 2012, with the Reds now legitimate title challengers this season after missing out on Europe last term.

And, despite the lure of Barcelona, the Premier League club will hope they can keep the 41-year-old on their books should the Catalan giants come calling.

“I am happy here. It is an incredible club – I love being the manager here," said the Liverpool boss, according to the paper.

”I haven’t got an agent so I don’t have someone pumping stories out there about me not being happy. There will be plenty of time, come the end of the season, to sit down and talk about a new deal.”

The speculation comes on the eve of a crucial weekend for Liverpool, as they face arch-rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford today (Sunday).
