FC Barcelona has reportedly been looking for replacements for Xavi this summer since the Spanish manager seems persistent in leaving the club at the end of the season. Xavi has not lost a game with FC Barcelona since he announced he was leaving the club at the end of the season. The Spanish manager continues to tell the media that he will, and nothing will change his mind. Although Barcelona is in need of a replacement soon, FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta wants Xavi to continue next season and has openly said that he will respect his decision. Laporta may continue to insist on persuading Xavi to stay next season and beyond with a new plan.

Mundo Deportivo reports that Barcelona have a plan with Xavi. Laporta, Yuste, and Deco are waiting for Xavi in the hope that he will reconsider his idea of leaving this year. Laporta believes Xavi is the best person to lead young players and top veterans like Lewandowski. Laporta believes that Xavi's decision to leave is not 100% definitive. The heavyweights of the FC Barcelona board, as well as Deco, are for the job of convincing Xavi to back down on his decision to leave at the end of the season. Laporta considers that if Barça wins or competes until the end in the league and the Champions League, Xavi can reconsider his position.

According to reports, Xavi does not want to spend another summer like the previous one, with signings closed at the last moment because of the absence of fair play. If there are no guarantees that there is money to build a great squad, there will be no option for him to continue, no matter how well the season ends. Two players that Xavi reportedly wants for FC Barcelona are Joshua Kimmich and Bernardo Silva.
