Just one year after his arrival at PSG, Luis Enrique should be the target of a big Barça offensive this summer.

Luis Enrique has been at the heart of the turmoil for several weeks. Not because of the results of PSG, still solid leader of Ligue 1 and in a strong position before the second leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League against Real Sociedad, but because of its behavior towards screw Kylian Mbappé since the latter announced to his leaders his decision to leave PSG at the end of the season.

By taking out the Bondynois at half-time of the clash against Monaco on Friday, the Spanish technician sparked a real storm, attracting strong criticism. Should we see a cause and effect relationship? Still, the Spanish press announced this Sunday that the former midfielder was the priority of Barça for next season, or at least of Deco, its sporting director. “In an ideal world, Deco’s favorite coach is Luis Enrique”assured Cadena Ser journalist Sique Rodríguez.

Luis Enrique is under contract until 2025

“The one he likes the most is the Asturian coach, another thing is whether he can be signed or not because he has a contract with PSG, continued the Blaugrana specialist. Deco likes young coaches like Arteta or Xabi. Alonso. He likes Roberto de Zerbi and his methods are also recognized. Obviously, we have always talked about the German sector: Flick, Tuchel… The economic situation is what it is and it limits the possibilities, but at the moment, the coach he likes the most is Luis Enrique. »

If he is indeed under contract with PSG until June 2025, Luis Enrique knows Barça very well. After playing there for eight seasons as a player (1996-2004), Luis Enrique returned as coach for three seasons between 2014 and 2017 with a Champions League title in 2015, the last of the Blaugrana where Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez and also Xavi were playing.
