The reporter mentions that Xavi has demanded two things from the management. First, there must not be a major exit and second, the new arrivals must be significant.

Since Xavi declared that he would depart from Barcelona at the season’s end, the Catalan team has enjoyed an impressive unbeaten streak of 12 games.

Between late January and until now, speculation has swirled around the upcoming vacancy at the club, yet Barcelona’s financial limitations have consistently hindered progress. 

Presently, the management, headed by President Joan Laporta and sporting director Deco, places increasing reliance on Xavi and it is an open secret that they desire him to continue leading the current project.

At this moment, Xavi’s decision is pivotal, as it not only signifies his personal commitment but also reflects the club’s ability to steer its current challenges and secure a promising future.

By placing trust in youngsters like Lamine Yamal and Pau Cubarsi, Xavi has injected vitality into the squad, prompting the veterans to step up as well.

As of today, while results matter for his future, Laporta’s persistent urging could convince him, especially if he is assured of the reinforcements he deems necessary without losing key players. 

For that, Xavi still sees gaps in midfield and desires players like Martin Zubimendi, Joshua Kimmich, and Bernardo Silva, but hefty investments must navigate financial regulations.

If Laporta ensures stability and the team avoids any embarrassing mishaps in the upcoming games, then anything becomes possible. 

However, it must be noted that La Liga has cautioned that without guaranteed funds, Barcelona won’t be able to make regular signings, unable to utilize sales money under the 1:1 regulation.

On a personal note, Xavi has expressed his desire to depart and spend time resting with his family. 

Yet, if Laporta persuades him otherwise, it could be tough for his loved ones to oppose his decision to continue. But mere promises won’t be enough as concrete actions are necessary.
