The current Celta Vigo manager is said to have held a three-hour meeting with the club’s sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta on Monday about taking over the reins at the Camp Nou. Gerardo Martino has disappointed the board in his first season in charge, losing to Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey final, losing out in the Champions League quarter-finals and looking unlikely to claim the league title. As a result, Enrique is likely to be appointed for the 2014/15 campaign and could make a bid for Soriano whom he managed when in charge of the Barcelona B team, as the Catalans search for a traditional no.9. Soriano had a successful spell with Enrique where the team finished third in Spain’s second tier, scoring 54 goals in 73 games from 2009 to 2011. The Red Bull Salzburg has been attracting interest from fellow Catalan Roberto Martinez who is considering an offer to take the striker to Goodison Park but the opportunity to play for Bara’s first team under his past mentor could be hard to turn down.
