It's the type of news no one wants to hear.
Barcelona were rocked today by the breaking story of manager Tito Vilanova's illness after an apparent relapse of a salivary gland ailment that forced him to have a tumor removed last year.
While all good thoughts and well wishes should be with the coach after his sickness, one cannot help but wonder what the future holds for Barcelona.
If true, this would be quite a shame, as Tito has led Barca to such an incredible start to the season in just his first few months in charge.
With the club planning a press conference later today, all signs point to this unfortunate outcome.
So the question is clear: Who will be the next manager of FC Barcelona?
Here are the four most likely candidates for the job.
