With Ernesto Valverde facing the sack, Barcelona have made a three-man shortlist as they look to bring in a new man in the dugout for the upcoming season.

Barcelona’s hopes of a treble all but crumpled after Liverpool mounted a sensational comeback against them and won 4-0 to complete a turnaround from a 3-0 defeat in the first leg, thereby ensuring qualification into the final of the UEFA Champions League. Meanwhile, it was the same old story for the Catalans who bottled a first leg lead pathetically in the second.

They are very much on track to complete a domestic double for the second season running, but the players were even ready to die in order to bring the European Cup back to the Camp Nou. Lionel Messi led the ambitioned call in a speech at the Blaugrana’s stadium earlier this season and it was echoed all throughout the season by everyone at the club.

However, Ernesto Valverde’s horrible man management and tactical setup has cost Barcelona not once, but twice, and they will be making a call on the manager’s future shortly. As reported by Fox Sports, Josep Maria Bartomeu already has his mind set on firing the former Athletic Bilbao manager and has shortlisted three players for him.

According to the claims, Ajax Amsterdam manager Erik ten Hag leads the list and Barcelona will attempt to land him at the Camp Nou. He has done a magnificent job with the Dutch giants and could also be used as bait by the Catalans to bring in Matthijs de Ligt. His tactical mind-set could perfectly sync with what the Spanish champions are looking for.

The other two managers who complete Barcelona’s wish-list are ex-Paris Saint-Germain manager Laurent Blanc and Real Betis coach Quique Setien. The former has been on Real Madrid’s radar earlier on, but he has been jobless since being sacked by PSG in 2016. Meanwhile, Quique Setien is an admirer of Pep Guardiola and has set his mark on Real Betis by making them a European revelation over the recent years
