Rumours have it that Setien has been earmarked for dismissal following a shameful 8-2 defeat at the hands of German champions, Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League.

Ronald Koeman

It is believed that he will be relieved of his duties to allow Netherlands coach and former Barcelona defender, Ronald Koeman take the reins.

Koeman had been linked with the role for quite some time and even has a clause in his contract that allows him take over at Barcelona anytime they come calling.

The Dutch coach may be offered a two-year deal, but he reportedly wants three.
