The cycle of Xavi Hernández in the bench of the FC Barcelona will come to an end the next 30 June. The egarense communicated this hard news the past Saturday in the back press conference to the defeat in front of the Villarreal CF (3-5). This defeat expanded the complex dynamics of results of the Barcelona picture, losing already this month of January the possibility to win the Supercopa of Spain and the Glass of Rey, and hampering his options in LaLiga, since although they have a less contested commitment, have to recortar a wide difference of 11 points regarding the current leader.

In spite of the difficult situation that crosses the Catalan picture, is innegable that the apparently immovable decision of Xavi Hernández has generated a true 'earthquake' in the City Condal, especially to emotional level. In fact, already it has seen to more than a player express his desazón and some fault by the course of the of Terrassa. Even Joan Laporta in his moment would have urged him to remain , but the decision of Hernández, backed by his rooted feeling culé, seem to be definite.

Section of this, has spoken a lot recently on the economic subject. Xavi Hernández, in a gesture that shows once again his love by the club, announced that it would renounce to his last year of agreement, to the not wanting to be a load for the entity and like this be a 'headache' less for the Barça. Nevertheless, it is convenient to analyse the quantity of money that the cast blaugrana would be saving with the ending of the agreement of the egarense.

How much money 'forgave' Xavi Hernández to the FC Barcelona?

The past year, Xavi won his renewal with the club after a season 2022/2023 very successful. In spite of not obtaining the best results in Champions and Europe League, being deleted of both competitions, attained to win LaLiga, breaking a drought of three seasons without adding this award, and also the Supercopa of Spain at the beginning of 2023, with a conclusive victory in front of the Real Madrid (1-3). These were the ingredients for a renewal that sealed until 30 June 2025, but that included a clause of automatic extension until 2026 in function of the attainments obtained in these courses.

It is necessary to stand out that this contractual prolongation comported a clear increase in the remunerations received by Xavi Hernández and his technical body. As it informs 'SPORT', before the renewal, the egarense won a total of 4 M€ gross by season, and his 'staff' of work 1,5. After the renewal, these figures would have increased to 8 and 4 M€ gross respectively, adding a total of 12 million gross euros. Because of the termination of this relation with one accord, the Catalan club will not have to pay this quantity, what supposes a relief for the club and another big act of love by the Barça by part of the technician egarense.
