Conte on Barcelona radar?

Spanish heavyweights Barcelona have identified Chelsea boss Antonio Conte as a potential candidate to replace Ernesto Valverde at the helm during the summer.

According to Don Balon, Valverde's position is likely to be re-assessed in the off-season despite the Blaugrana being on the verge of a domestic double this campaign.

The Catalan giants sealed their 30th Copa del Rey title as they beat Sevilla by a comfortable 5-0 margin on Saturday whilst they are in need of a maximum of four points in order to assure themselves of the La Liga crown.

Despite the positives, the Camp Nou giants are disappointed with their shocking exit at the hands of AS Roma in the Champions League quarter-final and this has seemingly put Valverde's position under scrutiny.

Meanwhile, Conte has recently guided Chelsea to the FA Cup final via a 2-0 triumph over Southampton but his chances of staying beyond the summer look bleak with the club failing to offer a decent challenge for the league title.
