Barcelona eye Conte and Pirlo as new manager options

Barcelona are keeping tabs on Antonio Conte and Andrea Pirlo as potential options for Ronald Koeman replacements.

Daniele Longo has reported that the relationship between Koeman and the club’s board has never been this bad and they could well be ready to sack the Dutchman.

While Xavi happens to be their main option and talks with the Spaniard have gone on for months now, Joan Laporta is also keeping an eye on both Conte and Pirlo. 

Juventus, who still have a contract with Pirlo till the summer of 2023, won’t hold the Italian back in joining Barcelona and they would be willing to free the Brescian if he gets the chance.
