Barcelona are watching De Zerbi as Valverde replacement
Ernesto Valverde’s contract expires on June 30 and so far Barcelona have not discussed about recharging the arrangement with him.
That has led to rumours springing up over his replacement. One has come from Italy. All the more explicitly, Corriere dello Sport.
The Italian paper says Barca are observing the evolution of Roberto de Zerbi, a youthful Italian mentor known for having the Barca style.
De Zerbi’s name is known in La Liga because he was a step away from moving to Las Palmas last summer.
In fact, his arrival as a replacement for Quique Setien was sealed but judicial problems with his previous side Palermo wound up breaking the arrangement.
De Zerbi’s style is Barca-like but his CV is weaker than Valverde’s, significantly.
