Worst news for Mourinho, the reason why he may not arrive to Barcelona and it is not about his salary

The Portuguese tactician has been sounded as a candidate to lead Barça, but it seems that it will not become a reality

Although his name has emerged as a possibility to take the reins of FC Barcelona, it seems that Jose Mourinho will not be the new tactician of the Blaugrana club, because according to Mundo Deportivo, Xavi Hernandez "is considering the possibility of reconsidering his decision to leave the club at the end of the season". Let's remember that the former Barça midfielder still has one year left on his contract, so if he decides to stay, the club would no longer have to look for a new coach.

Xavi Hernandez had announced that he would not remain at Barcelona at the end of the current season. His decision was announced on January 24 after the 3-5 loss to Villarreal, stating that the club and the players needed "a change" and that he no longer had anything to contribute. However, the most recent information suggests that he could even announce his continuity in the next few days, something that would prevent the arrival of Jose Mourinho.

A couple of days ago, Barcelona's Brazilian legend Rivaldo proposed Mourinho to manage the Culé team. "I think he would be a great signing, even if some fans don't like to hear his name. He would certainly do a great job, he knows the team, the Spanish league, the Champions League and has a lot of experience," said Rivaldo, who is the Brazilian with the most goals in the history of FC Barcelona. In 235 games, Rivaldo scored 130 goals and provided 45 assists, in addition to winning four titles with the club.

For his part, unlike Xavi, Mourinho already knows what it is to succeed at the European level as a coach. The Portuguese has had a long career and has coached teams such as Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, Inter and Porto, among others. His numbers are very good and, in terms of experience alone, he far surpasses Xavi. The Special One has managed a total of 1132 matches, of which he has won 701, with 227 draws and 204 defeats. Xavi, on the other hand, has only managed 232 games with 151 wins, 36 draws and 45 defeats.

Xavi is already preparing the first two reinforcements for Barcelona

According to Mundo Deportivo, Xavi Hernández knows that the team will need reinforcements if he decides to stay. In that sense, the source assures that FC Barcelona will go for Argentine midfielder Guido Rodríguez, who would arrive for free. They would also go for Dani Olmo, a Spanish striker for whom they would have to pay around 60 million euros, since that is the amount stipulated in his termination clause with RB Leipzig.
