Legendary former Barcelona midfielder Xavi has reportedly agreed to replace Quique Setien in the Nou Camp hot seat. The 61-year-old has endured a tough tenure at the helm of the Catalan giants since replacing Ernesto Valverde in January and speculation has mounted that the club’s board are tempted to wield the ax already.

And according to Mundo Deportivo, a ‘firm agreement’ has been finalized which would see Xavi take up the reins at the end of the season.

It is believed that talisman Lionel Messi – who has reportedly been considering his future at the club – and his team-mates are satisfied with what would be a sensational appointment.

Xavi, who currently manages Al-Sadd in Qatar, has been touted to earn £5.4million per year from his new bumper contract.

Xavi had taken over at Al-Sadd last summer after bringing an end to his trophy-laden time on the field with the same club.

The midfield maestro made 767 first-team appearances for the LaLiga giants,

and joined the club aged 11 before progressing through their world-renowned La Masia academy system.

Xavi himself admitted last month that he and his coaching staff are preparing to take charge of Barcelona in the future.

The four-time Champions League winner told a video conference:

‘The biggest hope I have now is to be a Barca coach and get Barca back to winning ways.

‘Not me but these players and Barca triumphing.

And as a consequence, our technical staff, who are preparing for it a lot and it makes us really excited.’
