As expected for several days, Xavi should become the new coach of FC Barcelona.
the Barça suffered again on Tuesday. Indeed, if the Blaugrana finally won in Ukraine (1-0), thus maintaining their chances of qualifying for the round of 16, they had to take their trouble patiently before finding the opening thanks to a feat ofAnsu Fati at the end of the match.
The Catalan club has nevertheless recorded good news. The signing of Xavi, hoped for several weeks, now seems imminent. According to Catalan radio RAC1, part of Barça’s board would have gone to Qatar to complete the arrival of the former Catalan midfielder.
While President Joan Laporta looked set to be part of the delegation, he eventually stayed in Barcelona, after a late return from Kiev overnight. Rafa Yuste, vice-president of sports, and Mateu Alemany, director of football, on the other hand, are on the trip to complete the Xavi file.
