The future of Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez hangs in the balance as club president Joan Laporta ponders a potential change at the helm. Recent performances and media press conferences have reportedly left Laporta unsatisfied, sparking speculation about Xavi 's position.

Update after Crucial Meeting for Xavi Issue

A pivotal meeting between Laporta and Xavi is expected to take place soon, with an update on manager's fate. Barcelona's hierarchy is said to be divided, with some advocating for Xavi's continued leadership, while others believe a change is necessary. This uncertainty has reportedly created a "toxic" atmosphere within the coaching staff and boardroom.

Rafa Marquez or Hansi Flick as Potential Replacements?

Should Xavi be dismissed, Barcelona reportedly has potential replacements in mind. Former Barcelona defender Rafa Marquez, currently manager of Barcelona Atletic, is considered a leading candidate. The experience of German coach Hansi Flick has also garnered interest, with reports suggesting he could be a potential target.

Xavi Determined to Stay, Barcelona Faces Financial Hurdle

Despite the speculation, Xavi has provided a fresh update after Barca's win over Rayo Vallecanon  and is determined to remain as Barcelona manager. However, dismissing him would reportedly come at a significant financial cost, with estimates suggesting a severance package of €20 million. This hefty sum could be a significant obstacle for Barcelona, considering their well-documented financial struggles.

A definitive decision on Xavi's future is expected to be made next week. Barcelona fans will be eagerly awaiting the outcome, with significant implications for the club's direction and future success.
