Once the season with the Al sadd, Xavi Hernandez he landed yesterday in Barcelona with his wife, Núria, and his two sons, Asia Y Dan, to enjoy your vacation at home. A cloud of cameras and microphones surrounded the Egarense, who last week was renewed by the Qatari club until 2023 without a release clause to go to Barça. The uncertainty surrounding the future of Ronald Koeman has fueled speculation about the possibility of Xavi returning to the Camp Nou but, as he has learned MD, It is not currently the priority of the Barça club to assume the bench in case of dismissal of Koeman. Barça’s version agrees with what Xavi himself said yesterday upon his arrival at El Prat: “Really, I don’t know anything. I’m coming on vacation, I don’t know anything ”. According to sources close to him, he has no news from Barça.
From the Barcelona entity it is insisted that it is not true that he wants it Joan Laporta to relieve Koeman or negotiate with him. This has been answered to all those who have asked if Xavi is the chosen one in case the Dutchman does not end up directing the team next season.
At Barça they interpret that the information that has emerged in recent days in some media in relation to Xavi being the preferred to land on the bench could be due to the fact that there are players who would welcome his signing, as happened in January 2020.
To this day, Laporta does not have Xavi’s priority for the bench but not because of a matter of pride in the fact of having been linked to Victor Font for at least two years prior to the elections.
It is not ruled out in the club that if Xavi had told Laporta that he would like to take Barça B, as he did Pep Guardiola In 2007, perhaps the president would have thought about it so that in a year or two he would make the jump to the first team. Another aspect that plays against Xavi is that he has a broad structure in several areas, something that contrasts with the ideas of Laporta, who does not like to have plans made for him but rather that his project bears his stamp.
