Xavi's Barcelona Reign Set to Continue with Contract Extension

Updated: Sep 15, 2023

Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez's future at the Catalan club is looking brighter than ever. With his current contract set to expire at the end of this season, fans and football enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting news of an extension.

According to reports from Spanish tabloid Mundo Deportivo, it appears that the wait may soon be over, as an agreement to extend Xavi's contract by an additional year, until the end of the next season, is in the final stages of negotiation.

Xavi's agent, Fernando Solanas, took the initiative to engage in talks with Los Cules regarding a new contract for his esteemed client. While there was initial optimism for an agreement stretching all the way to 2026, it seems that the ex-Spanish midfielder is now primed to commit to the club until 2025. However, the official announcement of this exciting development will have to wait a few more days.

The reason for the delay lies in a crucial meeting scheduled for Wednesday. Xavi is set to sit down with Barcelona's newly appointed sporting director, none other than his former teammate, Deco. It is this meeting that is expected to seal the deal and make Xavi's contract extension official.

The return of the legendary midfielder to Barcelona as a coach in November 2021, following Ronald Koeman's departure, has been nothing short of remarkable. Under his leadership, the Catalan club has already secured two prestigious trophies: the Spanish Supercopa last January and the La Liga title in May.

As Barcelona fans eagerly anticipate more successes under Xavi's tutelage, the imminent contract extension announcement promises to be the cherry on top of an already impressive tenure.
