After the election of Joan Laporta at Barcelona, multiple speculations have made the rounds, including a change in management. While Ronald Koeman has done a fairly good job with the team, they have a long way to go yet.

More from Everything Barca

Recently it was reported that RB Leipzig’s boss, Julian Nagelsmann was being considered by Laporta for a move to Barcelona as manager. Since then the rumor mill has been only more rampant and Nagelsmann has responded to the links.

"“I know how the football business works,” he said, adding it would disrespectful of him to “talk about these issues”.Source: Goal"

Although Koeman’s reign with the Spanish giants has been short, it has been anything but smooth sailing. He has faced multiple difficulties with injuries and no new transfers. However, the Dutchman fared well and perhaps won’t be replaced just yet.

Nagelsmann linked to both Barcelona and Bayern Munich

Meanwhile, Nagelsmann has refused to comment more on this business and is adamant to keep doing his best for Leipzig. Although he has been linked with not just the Blaugranes but also Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich. Since both these clubs currently have managers, he is refraining comment on the matter.

It is not entirely surprising to see 2 major clubs linked to the German. He has achieved a great deal in his career and has managed to bring Leipzig into the top-6 spot from just playing top-flight football. Now his club is second in the table, bested only by toppers, Bayern Munich.

Whether or not the 33-year-old would be a good fit at the Nou Camp is a matter of opinion. He has certainly proved to be assertive and bring about good results but few managers are capable of caching with the Barca philosophy.
