With the pressure increasing on Quique Setien, Ronald Koeman is once again being linked with Barcelona.

Setien’s time at Barcelona looks to be coming to an end after the 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday dented their title chances.

Should Barcelona decide to sack the coach then two names will be instantly linked. Xavi and Ronald Koeman.

According to TV program El Chiruingito, Xavi would be preferred by President Josep María Bartomeu, but the problem is that Al-Sadd’s current trainer doesn’t want to work with technical director Éric Abidal.

That would mean, Barcelona could again turn their attentions to Koeman, who has pledged not to leave his jobs as Netherlands national team boss until after Euro 2021. However, El Chiruingito believes that Koeman would leave Oranje if approached again.
