Can we be sure about that Sampaoli was in Chile when Tare was in Barcelona?
Could it be that they had a sit down and Sampaoli then went on to Chile? I don't know the timeframes here, I just know Sampaoli was confronted by journalists when he landed in Santiago.
Is there a timeline here that rules out any meeting with the man?

According to reports, Tare went to Barcelona to meet Sampaoli on Tuesday evening, and Sampaoli was back in Chile by Wednesday. It's possible they met, but Sampaoli would've needed to be on an overnight flight.

They are claiming in Chile that he wasn't in Barcelona, but in Turkey to talk with Fenerbahce and that he indicated upon arrival that he hadn't done a deal with them, but refused to speak to the media. There were then reports that he joked at the airport that he was in Rome 'on vacation'. There are also quotes from Sampaoli claiming he went to meet Guardiola. And there's a fresh rumour in Chile that Granada are being bought out, and that Pep Guardiola's brother who works there has met with Sampaoli to discuss him taking over as manager once the buyout is completed.

Basically, Sampaoli is reported to have been in three different places at once at the same time. I think we can only go on facts and there's really no evidence of Sampaoli being in Barcelona, or Istanbul, or Granada, or even returning to Chile and there's no evidence of Tare being in Spain either.

The only evidence we have is that Sampaoli was in Rome last week.

Great, thanks for casting atleast som light on the situation.
As always with these "reports" there are more or less no real evidence as to anyone being anywhere, except for when someone is caught on camera. Which is exactly what happened a week ago in Rome, when Sampaoli was there "going for a walk" as he himself said.

The other thing with Tare and Calveri flying to Barcelona might very well be true as well, but what they were doing there is anyone's guess. Perhaps they met with At.Madrid to sell Candreva, perhaps they met with Barcelona to buy Adriano, perhaps they went straight to a connecting flight to throw the journalists off.
Exciting, but mostly anxious times.

Seemed very strange that Tare would fly out to Barcelona to meet Sampaoli after they just spent hours together in Rome.  To sign a contract i would expect Sampaoli back in Rome and nothing else.

Either he's already the new coach or as good as, or there's no deal and he's looking at other options.

It seems clear Tare went to sign Adriano who remind doubtfull after earlier negotiations, they say he was expected to attend the Fiorentina match but did not show up.

By the way, on another matter, is there actuel proof Tare went on to Portugal?
Their media are firm he was after Jardel, some claim the deal might be done already ....
