While the Dutchman had been confirmed a few days ago, however, Joan Laporta decided to start over on new bases.

A Barça version Xavi?

Since the announcement of Ronald Koeman 's departure, one name has come to the fore of all discussions: Xavi. Today in Qatar at Al Sadd , the former Barça was expected to return to Camp Nou sooner or later, so that would be for now. In Spain, all the media agree that Xavi is the big favorite to take the lead of FC Barcelona , while an interim coach could however be in place for the next meetings.
