According to Spanish media, Barca president Josep Bartomeu is seriously considering appointing Xavi to become the team’s head coach. With the desire to re-create the era of success like Pep Guardiola’s time, the blood change on the training bench will be implemented as soon as this season ends.
Xavi is still leading Al-Sadd Club in Qatar. But according to information revealed from Mundo Deportivo, the 40-year-old legend has agreed to lead the old team with a salary of 6 million euros per season.

Last week, Xavi also publicly dreamed of leading his old team on television: “My biggest hope right now is to lead Barcelona and bring the team back to their peak. My team is ready and excited for this.”
“I’m from Barca. I want to go back to the right time to start the campaign from scratch. It will take a lot of time but I want myself to have the right to make decisions at Barca.”
After 17 years playing football at the Camp Nou, Xavi Hernandez is one of the most respected Cules players. Just like Zidane at Real, the presence of the former Spain international will help Barca’s dressing room be organized.
