As Ronald Koeman is facing a axe, Barcelona chief Thomas Tuchel likes Chelsea boss Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel “the most”.

Joan Laporta, president of Barcelona, has identified Thomas Tuchel to be his number one choice to replace Ronald Koeman.

Koeman is under severe pressure at Nou Camp after a disappointing start to the season that saw Barca win only three of six La Liga matches.

It is their Champions League form that is most worrying, having suffered 3-0 losses in both of their first two fixtures against Benfica, Bayern Munich, and Benfica.

Koeman is therefore very important in Saturday’s trip at Atletico Madrid, his rivals. He could easily be defeated again.

According to Mundo DeportivoIf Laporta is granted the boot, Tuchel will replace him.

Since joining Chelsea in January, the German coach has done amazing work. He led them to Champions League glory during his first half-season.

He also appears poised to mount a Premier League title challenge this term after adding £97.5million striker Romelu Lukaku to his ranks.

Laporta will have difficulty taking Tuchel from Stamford Bridge. He signed a new contract in June, which will keep him there until 2024.

It would not be surprising that Barca, who are currently in turmoil on and off the pitch, convinced him to abandon the reigning European champions and board their sinking ship.

Jurgen Klopp, his compatriot in the post has also been mentioned in recent weeks. Roberto Martinez refused to rule out a move amid suggestions he might replace Koeman.

Barca icon Xavi is another candidate, but Luis Suarez, a former teammate, has urged him to not take the job.

This could prove difficult as Tuchel signed an additional three-year agreement with European champions Chelsea.

“At Barca, there is a war that hurts the players. I personally recommend to Xavi that he waits,” Suarez said.

“This is not the ideal time to go to the club. He is intelligent and know the difficulties of the club and he must wait for the right moment.”
