FC Barcelona are ready to offer head coach Xavi a contract extension that will keep him at the Nou Camp for a further two years. The former midfielder re-joined his boyhood club in November 2021 as a replacement for Ronald Koeman. In his first full season in charge, Xavi has already won the Spanish Super Cup and is on track to lead Barcelona to the La Liga title.
Xavi’s current deal runs until the summer of 2024 but president Joan Laporta has already expressed the desire to offer his head coach a new and improved contract. Xavi, however, has made it clear to the club that he wants to finish the season first before he will be discussing the terms of a possible new deal.
Despite Xavi’s desire to push back the contract talks, his agents had a meeting with Barcelona officials such as vice-president Rafa Yuste and the two directors Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff to discuss the contract renewal. It has now been reported by Marca that Xavi will be offered a two-year extension, which could tie him down at Barcelona until the summer of 2026.
