The recent performance of FC Barcelona has been very disappointing both in the Laliga and UCL. However, Ronald Koeman isn’t short of excuses after every defeat and below-average performance. Recently, after the 1-1 draw with Granada, he seemed to think his team had done “pretty well” all things considered. However, now Barcelona is preparing to part ways with Ronald Koeman.

According to Goal, Barcelona will relieve the Dutchman of his duties soon. However, the more concerning question is who is going to replace him. According to the reports, Belgium coach Roberto Martinez is next in line for the job. The Liga giants are now waiting on the right moment to make a change. FC Barcelona is in the middle of a hectic domestic and European schedule. But it certainly doesn’t deny the fact that an axe is about to fall in Catalunya.

Goal reports that the Catalan is close to piecing together the €12 million (£10m/$14m) that it would take to pay off their current boss and terminate the final months of a contract that is due to run until the summer of 2022 and appoint Roberto Martinez as the next head coach. The most ideal time that Barcelona are planning to axe Ronald Koeman is on the upcoming International break.

The second international break of 2021-22 will arrive in mid-October. If there isn’t a dramatic change in Barca’s situation then we may see Ronald Koeman being sacked at that time of the year. On the other hand, the former Barcelona captain, Xavi has remained heavily linked with Barcelona. However, it is very unlikely that he will untie his contract in Qatar with Al Sadd.
