The FC Barcelona organization is undergoing a period of change and transition, and this is true not only for their squad but also for the administrative structure of the club. Mateu Alemany was recently confirmed to be leaving the club at the end of the season, and the club is looking at a number of candidates for his replacement.

One of the candidates looking the most likely to replace the departing Alemany as the Director of Football is the former Barcelona and Portugal player, Deco. According to Mundo Deportivo, he is the first in line to take up this position.

Furthermore, the report also mentions that the former player, who also happens to be the agent of Raphinha, already has scheduled a meeting with FC Barcelona to negotiate for his proposed position at the club. The meeting is expected to take place this coming Tuesday.

Deco will be offered a contract that ends in 2026, the same time as the end of Joan Laporta’s tenure as the president. Before committing to the club, the former player wants to get a clear and detailed picture of what his role at the club will be, his powers, and his role in the decision-making process.

Given the fragile economic conditions and the little financial space he will have with transfer operations, Deco wants to consider his options carefully before accepting the offer. He will also have to relinquish his role as a player agent, including that of Raphina if he takes up the position at FC Barcelona.

However, the agenda of the meeting will not only be limited to Deco’s position, as other important things are also to be concluded. For instance, Raphinha’s future will also be discussed, primarily in the context of him getting attention from the Premier League, and Newcastle being ready to offer a good deal for the player.

Thus, the meeting between the two parties this Tuesday can have deep implications for the club in the long and short term.
