Mauricio Pochettino could make a dramatic return to management at Barcelona if the club replace Quique Setien this summer.

Pochettino had previously ruled out taking over at Barcelona having previously been a manager at Barca’s city rivals Espanyol.

But Espanyol now find themselves in the second tier in Spain and Pochettino has back-tracked on previous remarks that he would rather go back and work on the farm in Argentina than coach at the Camp Nou.
