Xavi’s dreams collide with unfulfilled promises and players for free sale

Xavi has called for many reforms in Barcelona, ​​but he is still waiting for action to implement them at the direction of President Joan Laporta and other executives.

And the Spanish newspaper “Marca” said that Xavi sent a message to the Barcelona board of directors after the team’s last match, in which he said: “Now the work begins in the offices, and this may be more important than what is happening on the field. We have to improve and strengthen to compete on all fronts, and to be able to On the competition, we have to change a lot of things.”

Xavi added: “Team officials have told me that changes are possible. At a big club like Barcelona, ​​you have to change a lot for things when you don’t win trophies.”

According to “Marca”, Xavi was surprised that no change occurred, especially after Ferran Gutgla and Philippe Coutinho left, and the contracts of players such as Adama Traore, Luke de Jong and Dani Alves had expired.

There are also players that Xavi does not think he will count on next season, such as Clement Lenglet, Ricky Puig, Samuel Umtiti, Martin Braithwaite and Oscar Mingueza.

According to “Marca”, the Barcelona administration has not yet fulfilled Xavi’s expectations regarding the players to be contracted, to improve the team’s chances of competing in the various tournaments that it will play next season.

The Spanish newspaper indicated that Xavi had received a promise from a senior Barcelona official that he would include Polish Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.

Barcelona raised the value of the offer made to Bayern Munich, the German football champion, to give up top scorer Lewandowski to 40 million euros, according to German media, on Wednesday.

Barcelona initially made an offer of 32 million euros, then raised it to 35 million, before it now reached 40 million, while Bayern Munich is demanding 60 million to give up the 34-year-old, who won the FIFA World Player of the Year award twice (2020 and 2021).
