Gerardo Martino’s replacement at the Nou Camp is enjoying a fine season in Catalonia, despite previously having a mixed record at AS Roma.

The club remain alive in three major competitions and are overwhelming favourites to advance to the Champions League final after beating Bayern Munich 3-0 in the first leg last week.

However, despite his achievements with Barca, it is not yet certain that coach Luis Enrique will still be at the club next season.

Following Manuel Pellegrini’s relative failure at Manchester City this season—the club lost their Premier League crown and failed to make the quarter-finals of the Champions League—several high-profile coaches have been named as possible replacements for the Chilean.

Luis Enrique has been a regular feature on shortlists of coaches to replace Pellegrini, and when asked about speculation, the ex-Real Madrid player refused to deny that Eastlands was in his future.

“Before a semi-final of the Champions League,” he began, speaking to As, “I don’t want to talk about what I am going to do.”

The election of a new Barcelona president may potentially make the coach’s position at the Nou Camp less stable, in which case, City may see an opening to acquire the talented manager.
