Barcelona Coach Xavi Signs One-Year Contract Extension

1 min read

Barcelona’s head coach, Xavi Hernandez, is on the verge of penning a new contract with the club, but the anticipated deal will only run until 2025. Initially, reports had suggested that Xavi would commit to Barcelona until 2026, but negotiations have led to a more conservative one-year extension. Xavi’s current contract is due to expire at the conclusion of the current season.

According to Marca, discussions regarding Xavi’s new contract were far from straightforward. The seasoned coach sought a substantial increase in his salary, partly to rectify his comparatively modest initial earnings and as a reward for guiding Barcelona to a league title.

In a concession to Xavi’s demands, Barcelona consented to doubling his current wage, a move that appears to have contributed to the shorter contract extension until 2025.

As the new season looms, Xavi will face heightened scrutiny, especially with the arrival of prominent players like Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo. Barcelona has set ambitious goals, aiming to defend their league title and mount a formidable challenge in the prestigious Champions League.

While the club enjoys a favorable draw in the Champions League, the real test will be whether they can contend with formidable teams like Manchester City. Barcelona fans and football enthusiasts worldwide will eagerly await the unfolding drama of the upcoming season, as Xavi steers the iconic club toward new horizons.
