Valverde frustrates Barcelona over new contract plans

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde wants to wait ahead of considering new contract talks.

Valverde's current deal expires in June and friends say he'd prefer to see how he feels about this season before considering new terms.

A source told Marca: "It will depend on whether he flourishes or not in his work."

For their part, Barca want to trigger the 12-month option in his contract as soon as possible.

But Valverde must agree to the move and as yet has offered little encouragement.
