While everything suggests that FC Barcelona's next coach will be Xavi, there is another manager who seemed to be waiting for a sign from Joan Laporta.
This Wednesday could go down in history as the start of the Xavi era at FC Barcelona . RAC1 has indeed announced that Rafa Yuste and Mateu Alemany, respectively vice-president and executive director of Barça, would have taken the plane to join the former midfielder in Qatar and convince him to take over from Ronald Koeman. To believe the Cadena SER, Xavi could also be on the bench of the Barça from this Saturday, with the trip to the lawn of Celta Vigo , as part of the 13th day of Liga.
Andrea Pirlo believed in it until the end
Before turning to Xavi, the leaders of FC Barcelona had other leads, however. This is the case of the one leading to Andrea Pirlo , who seemed to be the favorite of Joan Laporta according to the Catalan press. According to information from Calciomercato.com, the former Juventus would have waited until the last moment for a call from the president of Barça, in the hope of taking the reins of a new big club in Europe. He should finally leave Serie A, since CM.com reveals a strong interest in Empoli , Genoa or even Sampdoria.
