According to journalist Gerard Romero (h/t Fichajes), Xavi has decided to continue at Barcelona for another season.

“Even after El Clásico today, I see more chances of Xavi staying than leaving,” said Romero.

After a season marked by both highs and lows, as well as speculation surrounding his future, Xavi has made a decision that has surprised but also pleased Barcelona fans.

This news comes unexpectedly, particularly given the coach’s comments following Barcelona’s tough loss to Villarreal in La Liga in late January. 

At the time, the manager mentioned he planned to leave the club at the end of the season, which left fans and the media uncertain.

Even after the first leg against PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final, the coach maintained that the victory did not impact his decision. However, this immediate turnaround is now set to surprise many.

The club’s inability to spend on a new coach was evident, making the decision to keep him in charge a welcome relief for the board and fans alike.

Despite the team’s exit from the Champions League, Barcelona have seen notable improvements since Xavi announced his intention to leave the club after this season. 

Additionally, Xavi has prioritized the development of young talents like Pau Cubarsi and Lamine Yamal, both of whom have demonstrated exceptional skills on the field.

Xavi has earned the right

Behind this decision is the hard work of Joan Laporta, who has been relentless in convincing Xavi to stay for at least another season. 

Barcelona’s economic difficulties played a major role in these discussions as well, but Xavi’s ability to deliver results despite these challenges has been crucial in his decision to remain.

The coach also believes that his requests for new additions in the transfer market will be met, aiming to assemble a more competitive squad capable of challenging for top titles.

Though there has not been an official announcement from the club yet, an update is expected in the coming weeks.
