Barcelona are ready to hand manager Ronald Koeman a new deal, if he meets their targets for the 2021/2022 season, Goal reports
Koeman signed a two-year deal with the Catalans, after he replaced Quique Setien.
The 58-year-old guided Barca to their 31st Copa del Rey triumph last term.
They have made a decent start to the new season, despite wholesale changes to the squad over the summer.
Barcelona president, Joan Laporta, has submitted a conditional extension offer to Koeman, that guarantees him a longer stay at Camp Nou provided he meets certain performance criteria over the next 11 months.

Laporta expects Koeman to continue handling the pressure that comes with the managerial hot seat, meaning he must remain a picture of composure in front of the press regardless of whether his position is called into question.
He will also have to deliver consistent results while sticking to the club’s ‘Cruyffista philosophy’, with Barca’s performance in their 4-2 win against Real Sociedad on the opening weekend of the new campaign considered to be a solid blueprint to follow.
Koeman has been told to stick to a 4-3-3 formation going forward.
