However, the presidential hopeful has made a bombshell claim that they have "already started several conversations" with Klopp and his representatives over a switch to the Camp Nou.

Farre told Spanish newspaper Sport: "If Koeman works and does well, he would be, of course.

"Obviously, we have our roadmap and we had already started several conversations with Jurgen Klopp because it seems to us that Barca need such a coach."

Koeman, 57, signed a two-year deal to become new Barcelona manager after Quique Setien was sacked.
