One of Barcelona's main targets to replace Luis Enrique as a first team manager is Athletic Club's manager Ernesto Valverde. 

According to Mundo Deportivo, Valverde has already told Athletic Club that he won't extend his contract with the club and will leave this summer. However, the president of the club, Josu Urrutia, still has the hope Valverde changes his opinion and continues at La Catedral.

It's not an official position and Barcelona hasn't spoken again to Valverde. According to reports, José Angel 'Cuco' Ziganda will replace Valverde. He is coaching the reserves this season.
