According to a report by former Chile boss Claudio Borghi, Barcelona have agreed terms with current River Plate boss Marcelo Gallardo to replace Valverde. However, the contract will be officially announced around December according to Borghi.

"Gallardo will become Barcelona's coach this December. It's privileged info I have. Marcelo is one of the best coaches in the world, and D'Onofrio (River Plate's president) admitted that he would only leave the club when he wanted to, but I'm saying this after a credible source told me so," Borghi stated.

It's also said that Barcelona's Captain Lionel Messi has given his approval for Gallardo's appointment. Romour also has it that Valverde is already looking for his way out of Camp Nou due to severe pressure from the club faithfuls.
