BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 +10k

Ernesto Valverde has now left Barcelona's training ground after a meeting with the president Josep Maria Bartomeu, who will travel to the Camp Nou to decide on the Barca manager's future with the board.

It's been a hectic morning for Ernesto Valverde. After arriving a few hours before for what could be his last training session, he had a meeting with the president.

The Barca players left training, and then Valverde and Bartomeu met for the expected meeting which took place at 13:00. 

'Sport' inform that the meeting between both parties took place to analyse the sporting situation at Barcelona, that was affected after the Super Cup elimination against Atlético Madrid.

The meeting between the manager and the president didn't take place, according to the aforementioned media, to tell him about his sacking or continuity, but to reflect on the moment the club is going through.

It will be the board meeting on Monday, which Bartomeu will lead at the Camp Nou, when it will be decided if Bartomeu will continue or not as Barcelona manager.

Minutes later, Bartomeu arrived at the Board meeting at the Camp Nou, where the club's management will be the one to make a final decision on the future of Valverde after a spell marked by ups and downs.

Besides, Valverde left the training ground with a wide smile. He seemed more relaxed than usual in a few decisive hours to know his future at Barca.

About 15:30, Barcelona also communicated that the team will have a double training session on Tuesday (at 11:00 and 18:00). According to 'COPE', Eric Ábidal and Ramón Planes arrived at the Camp Nou offices for the board meeting.

On the other hand, the latest information provided by 'Catalunya Radio' indicates that Barcelona and their judicial team are now moving to negotiate with Valverde and his agent the coach's settlement. The board meeting is still on, but his departure seems more and more closer.
