Xavi and the five players he wants to transform Barcelona

Barcelona are still looking for a replacement for Ronald Koeman who was fired last week. According to several Spanish media, Xavi Hernández is highly relevant to take over as the new coach, and negotiations are said to be ongoing between Barça and the club icon’s Qatari club Al Sadd.

In other words, there is much to suggest that Xavi will return to Barcelona soon, and already now the former star midfielder is said to have identified five dream signings.

Spanish Sport reports that Xavi wants to bring in Kingsley Coman from Bayern Munich, and according to El National, the wish list also consists of Erling Braut Haaland (Borussia Dortmund), Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Jules Koundé (Sevilla) and Dani Olmo (RB Leipzig).

Recruitments that, however, can be difficult to complete. Barcelona is in an economic crisis and has billions in debt. Pogba has an expiring contract with United and can be recruited as boss this summer, but other players on the wish list are coveted names in the market and would cost many millions to row in port.
