Luis Enrique is likely to be named the new Barcelona coach, according to the Catalan television station TV3.
The former Real Madrid and Barcelona player is currently in charge of La Liga side Celta Vigo, but buy-out clause of approximately €3m (£2.5m) in his contract should the Catalan giants look to make another former midfield general boss at the Camp Nou.
As a player, Enrique played 207 games for Barcelona and 157 times for Real Madrid, whilst earning 62 caps for Spain.
TV3 already had Enrique lined up for the post last Summer, after Tito Vilanova stepped down, but Gerardo Martino got the job instead.
Enrique knows the Camp Nou well, as he was also in charge of the second team during the 2011/12 season.
As a player, Enrique won La Liga and the Copa del Rey three times, but he has not yet won any silverware as a manager.
The young coach is still looking to prove his worth as a potentially top-level coach, but has rebounded well from a disappointingly short spell as Roma supremo at Celta.
