Despite winning the La Liga title, there will be a tinge of disappointment at Barcelona as the season draws to a close.
The Blaugrana squandered a glorious opportunity to win the Champions League after surrendering a 3-0 lead in the semi-final against Liverpool.
Ernesto Valverde’s side would have been fancied in a final against Tottenham, but ended up suffering a painful exit.
As such, questions have been asked about whether Valverde is the man to lead Barcelona forward.
However, Marca are reporting that the 55-year-old feels supported and the players also want him to stay.

So, if Barcelona decide that a change in manager isn’t required, the alternative is to improve the squad.
And that seems to be a focus, with Barcelona potentially about to enjoy an incredible summer of business.
Barcelona's summer could be amazing
They have already completed a £65 million deal with Ajax for the signing of midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
And he could be joined at the Camp Nou by Matthijs de Ligt and Antoine Griezmann.
Barcelona are ‘one step away’ from signing De Ligt from Ajax, according to Marca.
“Matthijs de Ligt will be a Barcelona player by the time the 2019/20 season begins, and only something completely unforeseen will prevent that from happening with Los Cules one step away from securing a deal for the defender,” they write.
Meanwhile, Antoine Griezmann confirmed on Tuesday evening that he is leaving Atletico Madrid.
“I wanted to tell you that I’ve made the decision to leave to experience new things and have new challenges,” Griezmann said in a message directed at Atletico fans.
The door is now open for the France international to complete a move to Barcelona.
Griezmann was close to joining Barcelona last year before committing himself to Atletico Madrid, but a move to the Camp Nou now seems inevitable.
Barca are ready to pay his £108m release clause, according to The Guardian.
So, De Jong, De Ligt and Griezmann, all in one summer.
