The boss is going nowhere, and he is going to be a real boss.

According to reports in Spain, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has agreed to continue as manager next season regardless of the results of the end of the current campaign. It doesn't matter if Barça wins the double or ends up with no trophy at all, Enrique will be in charge for one more season.

Lucho signed a three-year deal back in 2014, which was extended after the Treble he won in his first year. While the team will not win a Treble in the second season, the board is satisfied with the results and the overall quality of football presented this term, which includes a Spanish record 39-game unbeaten streak.

But the news of Enrique staying was already a foregone conclusion. What makes it interesting is the fact that the board has promised Lucho will have bigger control over transfers. In his first two years, he was only allowed to give his take on the players the transfer team had already transfer listed. Now, the reports claim Lucho has the power to make his own list, approve or refuse transfers, and build the team he actually wants.

What do you think, Blaugranes? Agre with Lucho staying one more season with bigger power?
