Xavi reaches settlement with Barcelona as Hansi Flick jets in to take over


Xavi Hernandez has reached a formal settlement with Barcelona to terminate his contract at the club a year ahead of schedule.

The manager has always insisted he would be ‘no problem’ for Barcelona if he was ever deemed surplus to requirements and it certainly looks as though he’s a man of his word.

Multiple reports are stating that Xavi has not asked to be paid the €11 million in salary he was due for next year, only for his staff to be compensated as per their contracts.

Xavi will instead only receive €2.5m back from Barcelona which is the amount he spent out of his own pocket to leave Al Sadd and head home when he replaced Ronald Koeman.

The agreement means that Barcelona can now terminate Xavi’s contract early and appoint a new manager – with Hansi Flick waiting in the wings.

The German has already been spotted in the city and an announcement that he is Barcelona’s new manager is expected on Wednesday.
