From the City Condal, the rumours around the continuity of Xavi Hernández have not left to surface in the last days. With this uncertainty in the charge of trainer, does not result surprising that the FC Barcelona have begun to move and to explore again his list of candidates to see who adjusts better to the needs of the club, so much in the sportive field as in the economic, in case that the egarense was relieved of his functions.

Under this premise, one of the names that seems to interest more to the Catalan cast is the one of Hansi Flick, the one who finds available after his fallida adventure with the selection of Germany. Apparently, the native of Heidelberg would not see with bad eyes join to the combined Barcelonan, refusing other sportive projects like the one of Chelsea. This alternative seems to be of the like of Joan Laporta, the one who is an admirer of the called German school and, of course, also puts in value the successful experience heading to a big of Europe, the Bayern Munich.

The interest of the FC Barcelona by Hansi Flick is such, that recently informed that the sportive director, Deco, and the coordinator of the area of football, Bojan Krkic, travelled to London the Wednesday with the aim to keep a meeting with the trainer germano and his agent, Pini Zahavi. This seems to be an attempt by part of the picture culé to advance with the incorporation of the German, know his project and availability.

The candidature of Rafa Márquez keeps firm

However, as they aim in 'SPORT', although the candidature of Hansi Flick to be trainer of the Barcelonan square can be quite advanced, this does not mean that another of the candidates, Rafa Márquez, have lost terrain neither much less. It is necessary to remember that the Mexican has a high consideration by part of the sportive direction of the club because of his work with the Barça Atlètic, group with which is struggling for rising to LaLiga Hypermotion (second division) and with which has attained to improve to several players of the quarry, showing his capacity to work with the youngsters.

Likewise, the source mentioned sustains that the FC Barcelona does not consider to the 'Kaiser of Michoacán' as a patch or an option of emergency by need, but it evaluates it like a very serious candidature. Besides, the sportive direction knows it to perfection and does not need meetings to know how works or which is his project. Therefore, it would not be surprising that the relief of Xavi was Márquez or Flick. However, this only will know possibly the next week, after it finish the season and make the so expected 'summit' between the egarense and the directive of the club.
