The failure of the FC Barcelona in the Supercopa of Spain has done that the club pose a new stage that was not contemplated does hardly some weeks: the possible cessation of Ernesto Valverde like trainer of the first team.

Now, the bet of the club seems clear and focused to a change of technician this same month of January, being Xavi Hernández the elected to relieve to the Txingurri. This same Sunday, the egarense would give an answer to the club culé although, in case to be positive, could give step to two possible stages: his immediate incorporation or his arrival in winter.

For the FC Barcelona​, the ideal option would be that Xavi accepted to do charge of the team from already same, being announced this same Monday like new technician of the first team. In this case, the club would do effective the dismissal of Valverde and would incorporate to the Catalan that, remember, has a proposal of the club culé that extends to two years and half of agreement, contabilizando the current campaign and two more.

The CEO of the Barcelona entity, Òscar Grau, and the technical secretary, Éric Abidal, gathered with Xavi to present him the offer, although the current technician of the To the Sadd could give a distinct answer: accept the place but begin from the season that comes. A possibility that would leave to the club something more sold of face to the present season.

If Xavi accepts to arrive in summer

The FC Barcelona would have a problem if Xavi does not accept to arrive to the Camp Nou of immediate form to do it in summer, since the club would see forced to find a solution of emergency to the end of the present course. One of them could be that Valverde remain in the team, something little likely if the Txingurri knows with security that is sentenced of face to June to leave him his place to the egarense.

In a stage in which Xavi accept to come in summer and Valverde leave of immediate form, the club could bet by García Pepper, current technician of the filial that has gone through the inferior categories. Recently, it ensured that it is prepared to train to the first team, but in this case also would know that his adventure would finish in June. The last alternative would be to find in the market to a technician that accepted to do of bridge until the disembarkment of Xavi.
