Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez has ruled out a move for Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri.
The club is looking for a replacement for outgoing boss Luis Enrique, who is set to leave at the end of the season.
Fernandez told Cadena Ser: “It is not true that [Allegri] is coming.”
Luis Enrique’s assistant Juan Carlos Unzue and Athletic Bilbao manager Ernesto Valverde are also both contenders for the role.
Fernandez added: ” [Unzue] is someone who knows the club really well, including the system and the players, so he is prepared.
“Valverde has had several good seasons, not just at Athletic Club.”
