A host of managers have been linked with the Barcelona job
FC Barcelona are well aware that they have a hard summer ahead of them. The Catalans intend to restructure their team, but they are also aware that Xavi will be leaving. For this reason, Barcelona needs to be on the lookout for potential coaches in addition to just scouting players.
The names of numerous prominent coaches such as Mikel Arteta, Jurgen Klopp, and others have popped up. But either because of their present responsibilities or because they intend to take a hiatus, these coaches’ appearance appears unlikely.
But one man is free to do as he pleases come summertime: German coach Hansi Flick. After setting numerous records as Bayern Munich’s manager, he worked for the German national team. But it was his time spent with the Bavarian club that shot him to stardom.
Additionally, he has allegedly been connected to Barcelona who are currently seeking a coach, and he is actively seeking to accept such a role. It appears that FC Barcelona and the potential signing of Flick are the subject of even more encouraging rumours right now.

German journalist Christian Falk claims that Flick is actively studying and working towards fluency in Spanish. The reliable German source has confirmed this and added that Flick is looking for a new managerial challenge.
Furthermore, he attests to the fact that the former Bayern coach is drawn to the possibility at FC Barcelona. The Catalan team needs an overhaul, therefore they might be willing to consider hiring a different style of coach. Maybe a shift in leadership could help the team go on a different path.
Many Barcelona supporters will likely recall Flick as the one who orchestrated the horrifying 8-2 loss to Bayern. During that particular season, he guided his German team to an incredible sextuple, matching Barça’s illustrious feat under Pep Guardiola with six titles won in the campaign.
He also trained under Joachim Low, the German strategist who guided his nation to the World Cup championship. His established track record and strength of character undoubtedly enhance his reputation among Barcelona’s upper management, who are considering him as a possible successor to the leaving Xavi Hernandez.
