FC Barcelona still hopes to be in the semi-finals of the Champions League and be able to continue another year with Xavi's project, although if not, the list of replacements for the Catalan has already been reduced to just two candidates

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Xavi Hernández announced the last week of January that had taken the decision to abandon the bench of the FC Barcelona when finalising the season. The egarense understood that the abysmal beginning of year of the club, in which it lost the Supercopa, the Glass and distanció a lot of of the leadership in LaLiga, forced him to take a posture like this and from there the club began to work in finding the ideal candidates to relieve him, further that it still exists the possibility that the Catalan himself continue at the head of the Barcelona team.

But shelving this possibility for one moment, the reality is that Joan Laporta and Deco have kept his work to be able to converse with agents, and surely directly with some trainers, and from there can choose his favourite options, and also those that less fit him in the 'career'. Like this, an initial list of some 10 or 12 names has finish with Hansi Flick and Luis Enrique like the finalists.

Flick, an alternative of fast resolution

Like this it explains it 'Sportive World', signalling that Laporta keeps his idea to respect a last decision of Xavi with regard to if it can finally change his decision of not continuing at the head of the Barcelona project, with which has agreement signed until 2025. However, Flick keeps on being a possibility very 'simple' to think since it is the only real candidate and ideal that is without team and has the autonomy to accept offers to the instant.

Besides, the information aims that a key point for the German technician is his recent union of work with Pini Zahavi, the agent and Israeli employer that is good fellow of Laporta and that also works to the pair in other operations with the club, as already it did it in 2022 with the arrival of Robert Lewandowski. Flick Is also an alternative for the Bayern and the risk that it can sign anytime to return to Munich is a reality, by what the Barça is risking a lot when expecting know if finally it advances in Champions and Xavi finish accepting continue another year more.

Luis Enrique offers a similar profile to the of Xavi

The another 'finalist', as we already commented, is the 'Parisian' Luis Enrique. The Asturian trainer, as Xavi, knows very well the house and is a technician that is used to to bet by the youngsters. The problem is that has a year more than agreement with the PSG and that, as he said, if it is well in a place is used to to fulfil what has signed. It is thus that seems a bit more far to arrive to the Barça that Flick, highlighting besides that Laporta and Deco still keep on the table have Rafa Márquez if finally they have to accept the exit of Xavi.
