FC Barcelona are already aware of the fact that their summer will be a demanding one. The Catalans are hoping to remodel their squad, but also know that Xavi will no longer be with them. For this reason, beyond just scouting players, Barcelona also need to keep an eye open for possible coaches.

The names of many big managers such as Mikel Arteta, Jurgen Klopp, and others have popped up. However, either due to their current obligations or plans to take a sabbatical, the arrival of these coaches seems rather improbable.

One man who does remain without an obligation in the summer, however, is German coach Hansi Flick. A record-breaking former manager of Bayern Munich, he also had a stint with the German National Team afterwards. However, it is his time with the Bavarian club that catapulted his fame.

He has also been reportedly linked to Barcelona, with the club looking for a coach and him currently looking to take such a position. Now, it seems that there is even more positive information aligned with FC Barcelona and the possible arrival of Flick at the club.

According to German journalist Christian Falk, Flick is already learning Spanish and trying to master the language. This has been confirmed by the credible German source, who further claims that Flick wants a new managerial challenge.

Moreover, he confirms that the opportunity at FC Barcelona is appealing to the former Bayern coach. In need of a revamp, the Catalan club may be open to introducing a new kind of coach to the team. To steer the team in a new direction, perhaps a change in management could be the solution.

Many fans of Barcelona would possibly remember Flick as the deliverer of the horrific 8-2 defeat at the hands of Bayern. That very season, he led his German club to a massive sextuple, winning six titles in the campaign and matching Barça’s legendary achievement under Pep Guardiola.

He also studied under Joachim Low while the German mastermind led his country to World Cup success. This proven experience and mettle surely help his standing in the eyes of the Barcelona higher-ups looking at potential candidates to replace the departing Xavi Hernandez.

For now, while there is no official confirmation, Flick remains an enticing option for Barcelona. His records and statistics speak for themselves, and he is known for playing an attractive brand of football. Moreover, his past success with Robert Lewandowski could also possibly reignite the Pole’s best version.
