The €8m saving that Barcelona hope to make if Xavi Hernandez sacking decision is made

Next week, it will be decided whether or not Xavi Hernandez is sacked as Barcelona manager, a month after he committed his future to the club for another season. A meeting will be held by Joan Laporta and Deco to discuss the matter, at which point some clarity will be shared.

If Xavi is sacked, Barcelona would hope that he foregoes the final year of his contract. As per La Vanguardia, a total pay-out of €15m would be made if the 44-year-old is sacked, but half of that would not need to be paid if Xavi agreed to not take the remainder of his salary, as he agreed to in January when he announced his decision to step down at the end of the season.

Laporta is banking on Xavi’s “love for the club” meaning that he wouldn’t take the money, although given how this situation has played out, he would have every right to take everything he is owed by Barcelona.

    Qué vergüenza


    Not as embarassing as

    Billions wasted
    Merely one Champ Leag. in over a decade
    Over half billion burned Ievers
    No CIasico victory in ten games
    Dumped out twice in Europa Leag.
    Change of four different coaches yielded three trophies
    Last three years amounted less than one trophy average compared to our seven
    No trophies this season
