Multiple reports: Flick set to take over as Barcelona coach

Several reports claim that former Germany and Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick is close to being appointed as Barcelona's new coach.

Hansi Flick is reportedly on the verge of being appointed as the new coach of FC Barcelona.

Barcelona-based publication Mundo Deportivo and Sky Germany, among others, report that Flick is in line to replace Xavi Hernandez as the club's head coach.

Having agreed personal terms with Barcelona, the former Bayern and Germany coach has been informed by the club that they want him as their new coach, according to Sky Germany.

Flick enjoyed a highly successful spell as Bayern Munich coach from November 2019 until the summer of 2021, when he took over as Germany coach.

He was sacked from that role in September 2023 and has been without a job since.
