Barcelona are working on a potential replacement for Ronald Koeman and Roberto Martinez is the main candidate. The Belgium coach has a contract until the end of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, next December.
The Belgian federation won’t try and stop him leaving if he wants to, with a 1.8 million euro clause in his contract that Barça can activate to sign him.
Koeman had a similar clause with the Netherlands back in the day which he paid. If Barcelona don’t renew his deal then they will have to repay him that six million euros.
Quique Setien, the coach before Koeman, still has not received all his pay-off from his sacking.
