Barcelona might be considering sacking manager Xavi at the end of the season, despite the club legend’s initial plan to step down after the 2023-24 campaign. This decision was influenced by Barcelona's poor form earlier in the season and other related issues.

However, Barcelona then went on an impressive 13-match unbeaten streak across all competitions, including 10 wins and a Champions League last-16 victory over Napoli. Even though they were later knocked out by Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals, positive talks between Xavi and the club officials led to an announcement on April 24 that Xavi would remain until the end of the 2024-25 season.

According to Spanish football analyst Guillem Balague, the situation has shifted again, with Barcelona now open to sacking Xavi. President Joan Laporta is reportedly unhappy with Xavi’s doubts about Barcelona’s ability to compete for the La Liga title next season. Xavi recently admitted that the club's financial troubles would impact their plans and urged fans to accept that Barcelona can no longer sign any player they want.

Following these remarks, Laporta is reportedly considering other managerial options, with further discussions expected soon. Barcelona is on the verge of securing second place in La Liga, needing just one win from their remaining games against Rayo Vallecano and Sevilla to confirm the runners-up spot behind Real Madrid.

One reason for initially convincing Xavi to stay was the lack of suitable replacements, either due to availability issues, high costs, or their engagement with other clubs. Balague mentions Hansi Flick and Rafael Marquez as potential candidates to replace Xavi.

Flick is being considered for a return to Bayern Munich, depending on Thomas Tuchel's situation. Marquez, another Barcelona legend, has been managing Barcelona's 'B' team for the past two years, working closely with many academy graduates who have recently joined the senior team.
