Barcelona and Xavi agree on details for his contract extension

Barcelona award their former captain Xavi and current head coach with a brand new contract following his title-winning season.

Barcelona’s fortunes have seen a significant improvement since Xavi Hernandez returned to the club as head coach in November 2021. Under his leadership, they have re-emerged as a strong contender in LaLiga, securing their first title in four years last season.

Naturally, the Barcelona hierarchy, particularly President Joan Laporta, is thrilled with the progress Xavi has made since his return. He played a crucial role in the extensive squad overhaul that has contributed to the club’s success both on and off the field.

At the conclusion of the previous season, Laporta confirmed the intention to offer Xavi a contract extension, as his current deal was set to expire at the end of this season. According to MD, this extension has now been finalized, and an official announcement is anticipated in the coming week.

However, it’s noteworthy that Xavi has agreed to a one-year extension, despite initial expectations that he would commit until the conclusion of the 2025-26 season. Alongside the extension, Xavi will also receive a significant salary increase.

While Xavi’s contract extension covers just one more year at this point, it is positive news for Barcelona. The club has a solid foundation in place for future success, and now it is essential to build upon it.
