Spanish paper claim Jurgen Klopp may become new Barcelona coach.
Barcelona are lining up Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp as a replacement for Tata Martino, according to the Catalan-based paper Sport.
Speculation that Barcelona might look to change their boss in the summer has been rife for some time and the appointment of the popular German would be quite a coup.
Klopp, who guided Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles and the Champions League final last year, would be suited to a new challenge.
Dortmund have retreated back behind rivals Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga table, though they did beat them 3-0 at the Allianz Arena at the weekend.
If Klopp did swap the Westfalenstadion for the Nou Camp, he would first have to cope with a transfer ban across the next two transfer windows.
