Xavi Hernandez is already preparing to trim his Barcelona squad following a mixed start.
Barca won their first two La Liga games under Xavi, but since then, they have lost to Real Betis in the league, and also crashing out of the Champions League with a draw against Benfica and a heavy defeat to Bayern Munich.
