FC Barcelona is already preparing for the future and searching for the perfect coach for next season as Xavi will leave his position in June. Among the coaches mentioned, the name of Luis Enrique is cited.
A small revolution is brewing in Barcelona as Xavi has already announced his departure at the end of the season. The former Barça captain will leave his post in June, and the Catalan club is exploring numerous options to succeed him. According to information from Mundo Deportivo, one of them leads to a certain Luis Enrique. Under contract with Paris Saint-Germain until June 2025, the former coach of the Spanish national team has everything to appeal to the Camp Nou. “He is a figure of Barcelona,” writes Mundo Deportivo, recalling that Luis Enrique left excellent memories in Catalonia, notably thanks to the treble achieved in 2015 with La Liga, the Copa del Rey, and the UEFA Champions League.
However, the Spanish media tempers this possibility because Luis Enrique has a habit of honoring his contracts. If this is once again the case with PSG, his departure should not occur before June 2025. Barcelona could still try their luck and see if an opening exists. In any case, many other options are being explored simultaneously. Mundo Deportivo mentions, for example, the names of Mikel Arteta (Arsenal), Roberto de Zerbi (Brighton), Xabi Alonso (Bayer Leverkusen), Hansi Flick (free agent), Unai Emery (Aston Villa), Jürgen Klopp (Liverpool), and Sergio Conceiçao (FC Porto). There are many candidates, but only one will be chosen and will be the lucky one at FC Barcelona. Meanwhile, the German press insists on the rumor of Hansi Flick, who could quickly become a favorite, even though Mikel Arteta or Luis Enrique are two profiles that excite supporters more.
