Barcelona sports chief Robert Fernandez's position is in doubt.
Sport says the Barca board are actively seeking a replacement for Robert, who has lost their confidence.
Barca, despite their high flying start to the season, are still trying to manage the fallout from a poor summer market highlighted by Neymar's departure to PSG.
Robert is expected to be pushed out, with replacements already being sounded out.
Among Barca's shortlist is Malaga sports chief Francesc Arnau.
