Barcelona-target Valverde insists he has 'no agreement with any club'

Athletic Bilbao says Ernesto Valverde will not remain as the team's coach next season, clearing the way for his expected move to Barcelona.

Saturday evening will be the final game at the Vicente Calderón in Madrid but it will also be an opportunity to end Luis Enrique's trophy-laden spell as manager with one final cup.

Sport say the signing of the midfielder would have Valverde's "complete and total support" and that he was never happy the Basque club sanctioned his sale.

Bilbao president Josu Urrutia, who sat alongside Valverde at the press conference, praised the manager's efforts and commitment to the club.

Valverde's contract with Athletic Club was already set to expire.


"I have an agent and there is interest. When there's an offer from a club, you will know the answer [if I'd be excited to coach them]".

Athletic gave the news in a communique on the club's website, confirming what many had been expecting for the past few weeks, reports Xinhua news agency.

"Ernesto Valverde will not continue as coach of the Athletic Club first team in the 2017-18 campaign", read a brief Athletic statement released on Tuesday.

"I have had a lot of doubts, but my work here is done". "I think it's good to have movement in football, for someone new to come along and have fresh ideas".

When pressed further about the supposed interest from Barcelona, he added: "I'm not going to talk about specific teams now".
