This summer transfer window will be very important as there will be lots of changes throughout the teams, but this year, it seems that there will be lots of managerial changes. FC Barcelona will part ways with Xavi, and Chelsea just parted ways with Mauricio Pochettino. Jose Mourinho is looking for a managerial job next season, and with the Chelsea spot being available, the Portuguese manager is immediately linked to it. However, according to journalist Pedro Almeida, Chelsea will meet with Xavi to evaluate the possibility of him becoming their new head coach. The London club is desperate to have a new manager and is planning to have a salary wage for their new manager. Xavi earned around $8.5 million yearly at FC Barcelona, and Chelsea paid Pochettino a salary of around $13.1 million. Xavi could earn slightly above $10 million.

Xavi spoke yesterday about leaving Barcelona and revealed that he was told by the club president, Joan Laporta, that he would not continue as the manager next season a few days ago. Xavi said, “Yesterday [Friday] we were with the president and he told me the reasons why he believes that the club needs a change of coach. I just have to respect it (the decision to sack him). I am a club man and I will always be available for what Barça needs. I’ll be one more culé.”

With Xavi now available in the market for other clubs to approach and appoint, like Chelsea, the press asked the Spanish manager what is next for his career. Xavi spoke and said, “What next for me? I’ll take a break, we need it. And from there we will listen and see what the future holds for us.”
