Barcelona and Liverpool find themselves in a similar predicament as they both search for a long-term replacement for their departing managers.

The Catalan giants have set their sights on Brighton’s Roberto De Zerbi, who is also reportedly on Liverpool’s radar.

According to reports, Barcelona’s president Joan Laporta and sporting director Deco have already initiated talks with De Zerbi to lure him to the Camp Nou.

However, there may be a hurdle for Barcelona to overcome.

De Zerbi has a release clause of €10m (£8.5m) in his Brighton contract, which could pose a challenge for the financially constrained Barcelona.

On the other hand, Liverpool might find it easier to meet the financial demands.

De Zerbi himself has spoken about the interest from top clubs, expressing his honor but emphasizing his focus on his current work.

The Italian manager has also mentioned his affinity for his home country and Italian football, hinting at a potential desire to return to Serie A in the future.

However, he acknowledges that he is happy in the Premier League and appreciative of his time at Brighton.

Since taking charge at Brighton, De Zerbi has achieved remarkable success.

He guided the Seagulls to a sixth-place finish last season, securing their first-ever qualification for European competition.

This season, Brighton currently sits in ninth place in the Premier League and has progressed to the knockout stages of the Europa League.

The competition between Barcelona and Liverpool for De Zerbi’s services adds an intriguing twist to their respective searches for new managers.

Both clubs will need to weigh their financial capabilities and the allure of their respective projects to convince De Zerbi to join their ranks.
