Barcelona consider Mauricio Pochettino appointment?

Barcelona could reportedly move for Mauricio Pochettino as a replacement for current head coach Quique Setien.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino could reportedly become a candidate to replace Quique Setien as head coach of Barcelona.

Pochettino has been without a job since leaving Spurs at the end of last year, but the Argentine is widely expected to be back in the game for the 2020-21 season.

Setien will allegedly remain as Barca's head coach until their Champions League last-16 second leg against Napoli on August 8, but the speculation surrounding the 61-year-old's future continues.

The Catalan giants - beaten to the La Liga title by Real Madrid this season - are thought to be weighing up managerial candidates, with Laurent Blanc and Patrick Kluivert being linked with the role.

However, according to Marca, Pochettino could also be in the running for the position.

The report claims that Barca have already 'approached' the 48-year-old since he left Tottenham, although the former Espanyol boss is yet to decide on his next move.

Newcastle United, Benfica, Monaco and Juventus have also all been mentioned as possible suitors.
