Xavi’s renewal at Barcelona is reportedly nearly complete. The Barcelona boss has been in negotiations with the club for weeks now and the details are apparently getting ironed out now the title has been won.

The deal will apparently run through June 2026 and allow Xavi to continue at the club and continue the project he’s started. The deal is likely only that short in years due to the economic stress of the club, something Xavi is all too well aware of as he tries to plan some summer transfers.

This might be a good thing for the club too, keeping the years short. It gives Xavi a somewhat shorter leash to prove himself in European and domestic cup competitions and truly develop as a big match manager.

Xavi knows his team need to improve in Europe and will be hoping to make an impact in the Champions League next season. A contract extension is also reward for a great first season in charge and I hope it gets signed soon!
