FC Barcelona is currently in full negotiations to find a successor to Xavi Hernandez by the end of the season. Deco, the club’s sporting director, has already been in contact with the potential replacement, German Hans-Dieter Flick.

One week after Xavi Hernandez announced his coaching retirement with the Culés, Barcelona is determined to quickly find a new coach.

They have set their sights on Hansi Flick, a former favorite of Joan Laporta, who was the architect of an exceptional season with Bayern Munich, including winning a treble.

Flick, who also coached the German national team, has already had discussions with Deco via video call, as reported by the Bild newspaper.
