Manchester United face Barca fight for Moyes replacement

Published Add your comment

Barcelona have set their sights on hiring Manchester United and Monaco target Jurgen Klopp as their next manager should Gerardo Martino leave at the end of this season, according to reports in Spain.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport, citing Spanish publication Sport, claims that the Catalan giants have registered an interest in appointing the Borussia Dortmund boss this summer, as the pressure on Martino continues to rise. Barca’s 1-0 loss away to Granada at the weekend followed their exit in the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid, and left them with slim chances of retaining their La Liga title. As such questions are being asked over the credentials of Martino, who was only handed a two-year deal at the start of this season.

Now Sport believes that Klopp is the man they want to sit at the helm of the Nou Camp, which may alarm the likes of Monaco and United, who have both also been linked with the German coach. The growing unrest concerning David Moyes' position at United has been well documented, and Klopp has been tipped to takeover at Old Trafford if the Glazer family opt to relieve their current manager of his duties.

Reports in the Spanish press also state that Claudio Ranieri’s time at Monaco may be coming to an end, and that the mega-rich French outfit may offer a lucrative deal to Klopp in order to convince him to jump ship.
