According to De Telegraaf, Barcelona have made contact with Ronald Koeman in the last 48 hours but the Netherlands boss will not step down from Oranje.

Ernesto Valverde is under huge pressure at the Nou Camp and behind the scenes, Barcelona’s hierarchy are trying to find a replacement.

Xavi has already turned down the role, while Ronald Koeman was also approached, but he will not leave his role with Netherlands until at least the end of next summer’s European Championships.

Koeman has made no secret of the fact that Barcelona is his dream job but the 56-year-old will remain loyal to the KNVB.

De Telegraaf tried to reach out to Koeman for comment but he would not respond.
