Exciting news for FC Barcelona fans! According to MD, Xavi Hernandez will continue to lead the team from the dugout until June 2025. This decision follows his impressive performance since taking over the managerial reins in November 2021. Xavi has earned this contract renewal and a substantial increase in his remuneration. This decision seems natural after securing the La Liga title and the Spanish Super Cup in his debut full season as Barcelona’s head coach.
At first, there was initial speculation that the Egarense coach might sign until 2026, aligning with Laporta’s current presidential term. However, the decision was reached for Xavi to stay on board until June 2025.
Xavi’s agent, Fernando Solanas, skillfully negotiated the contract with FC Barcelona, recognizing both parties’ eagerness to reach a mutual agreement. Initially, the priority was to conclude the transfer window by assembling a competitive squad capable of challenging for titles. Now, the focus shifts to rewarding Xavi for his dedicated work with a substantial salary increase.
Awaiting the Official Announcement:
With the agreement essentially in place, the official announcement is pending a final meeting between Xavi and Deco, the newly appointed sporting director, set to be introduced on Wednesday, September 13th. Xavi and Deco had previously agreed that once the transfer window closed and following their short break during the international break, they would sit down to formalize the agreement already reached with Xavi’s agent.
The harmony between the new sporting director and Xavi is palpable. Both men, having been former players for Barcelona, understand that, at the club, the ultimate measure of their work is the acquisition of trophies. With their shared vision and commitment, they aim to bring further success and silverware to FC Barcelona.
The extension of Xavi Hernandez’s contract with FC Barcelona until 2025 heralds a promising era for the club. As the former midfield maestro continues to shape the team in his image, fans can look forward to more exciting football and the pursuit of coveted titles under his leadership.
