When we thought the only interesting summer soap opera would be the Mbappé saga, another one has emerged. Xavi recently announced that he will leave Barcelona in June, and this has unleashed a real frenzy in the world of football. The names of the possible candidates keep popping up, and one of the ones who seems well-positioned is Hansi Flick.
The Xavi case is a reminder of how quickly things can change in the world of football. Just a moment ago, the coach was the great hero, but now he has become the villain of the story. The truth is that he will not be staying in the Catalan city for much longer, and they need a replacement.
They are considering all options
The Catalan club is not surprised that Xavi made these statements. Different reports suggest that they knew about it for a long time. In fact, it is rumored that they have contacted some candidates for a while now, with the intention of speeding up negotiations.
The thing is that one of the coaches being considered is the former Bayern coach, Hansi Flick. According to Barca Universal, he is one of the most interesting options to replace Xavi. Apparently, he is one of Laporta’s favorites, so they plan to start negotiating soon.
They will have to hurry
Flick is without a team, so the competition will not be long in coming. It is estimated that there will be a lot of competition in the summer to get Hansi’s services. It has not yet been revealed which clubs are interested in him, but he is one of the most promising free agents out there, so the Catalans will have to start talking soon.
Of course, Flick is not the only candidate they are considering. It seems that the best positioned is Jurgen Klopp, who will also leave his team in the summer. The thing is that they cannot focus on just one move. They will keep all their options open, and then choose.
