Martino emerges as Barca favourite

Newell’s Old Boys boss Gerardo Martino has emerged as the favourite to succeed Tito Vilanova at Barcelona, reports claim.

AS believe that the Argentine tactician has already spoken with representatives from the Catalan club, with Barca’s director of football Raul Sanllehi expected to travel to Buenos Aires to continue talks face to face with the 50-year-old on Monday.

Both Luis Enrique and Andre Villas-Boas have been linked with the post, but the Madrid-based newspaper are confident that the former Paraguay Coach will be named as the new man at Camp Nou.
