The newspaper revealed, according to its sources, that the agreement with the former star of the team and the Qatari Al-Sadd coach is only a matter of hours, although the matter is not official yet.
And Serge Barjuan, coach of the reserve team for Barcelona, will be the interim coach until the appointment of the new coach.
Xavi was close to coaching Barcelona last year after the club’s president, Joan Laporta, questioned Koeman’s ability to continue.
According to the newspaper, Laporta was considering hiring Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp, or Ajax Dutch coach, Ten Hag, but realizing that a deal of this size is difficult to do at the moment, he chose to give Koeman some time.
The successive defeats of Barcelona precipitated Laporta’s conviction of the need to change the coach.
The newspaper said that Laporta puts Xavi among his options because the latter and his training style are consistent with Barcelona’s playing philosophy.
According to “Mundo Deportivio”, bringing Xavi to Barcelona training will not be automatic, as he must be freed from his obligation to train the Qatari dam, noting that the matter is possible through negotiations with the Emir of Qatar, who had previously expressed his willingness to facilitate the departure of Xavi if he received an offer from Barcelona.
And on Wednesday, Barcelona officially announced the dismissal of Koeman, after the team fell to its host, Rayo Vallecano, in the eleventh stage of the Spanish League.
Barcelona’s defeat against Vallecano came after the Catalan team fell in the Clasico against Real Madrid with two goals to one.
