Barcelona have reached an agreement for Argentinian Gerardo Martino to become their new coach.

The 50-year-old, who led Newell's Old Boys to the Argentinian Clausura title last season but recently severed ties with the club, has agreed a two-year contract at Barca where he will replace Tito Vilanova.

Barca announced on Friday night that the 44-year-old Vilanova was stepping down as he continues his battle with cancer.
