Laporta is curious about the prospective Barcelona coach.


When the summer transfer window opens, the Blaugranes will have to make some important decisions. On and off the field, FC Barcelona is a team that still struggles with indecision. Even though the Catalans’ financial problems have surely been difficult to handle, they still need to try.

As a result, Joan Laporta, the president of Barcelona, is now aiming to accomplish precisely that. Barcelona does not want to take any chances or spend any time in evaluating a potential replacement, since they already know that Xavi Hernandez will be leaving at the end of the current campaign.

As a result, Laporta wishes to personally learn more about a certain candidate, according to SPORT. Laporta wishes to investigate further the particular alternative that is currently head coach of Brighton in the English Premier League, Roberto De Zerbi.

For example, there is a lot more general information available on the management style of German coach Hansi Flick, a technical, both on and off the field. But the president only has very basic information about De Zerbi at his disposal.

As of right now, all rumors about the Italian coach have been positive. Additionally, it is acknowledged that De Zerbi’s style of football personifies a more contemporary take on positional play.

It would even be a welcome risk to trust the Italian coach with his fresh ideas, as Barcelona looks to develop and enhance their style of play.

But there’s more to it than just the athletic component on the field—financial considerations are also important. De Zerbi is under contract with Brighton until 2026, and if he were to sign a release clause with Barcelona, it would cost €10 million. Even while the amount is not excessive, it appears that the Catalan powerhouses are reluctant to pay it.

De Zerbi is still a great contender to join the Barcelona ecosystem come summertime. On the list of possible possibilities, he is by no means the only one. Former Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick, is also in a great position to possibly take over from Xavi Hernandez.
