Koeman: Barcelona? If they come, they come

Ronald Koeman, Vicente del Bosque and Roberto Martinez all attended an event at Mediapro's building in Barcelona that paid homage to Johan Cruyff, at which Koeman was asked about potentially taking charge at the Camp Nou.

The Dutchman is in charge of the Netherlands, yet that has not stopped the rumours of him replacing Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde from gaining traction.

"I have two more years left on my contract with the [Dutch] national team and I do not like to talk about Barcelona," Koeman said at the event.

"It's uncomfortable for a lot of reasons; I currently have a job and it's not fair to talk about this.

"If they come, they come; and if they don't, they don't. There are more important things [to worry about] in life."

During the event, Koeman hinted that he would be open to taking charge at the Camp Nou.

"Anything can happen," he stated.

Koeman has consistently said that he will not leave the Netherlands job before the 2020 European Championship, so towards the end of next summer Barcelona would, in theory, be able to pay his release clause and secure his services.
