Hansi Flick is apparently being considered by Barcelona to be their next head coach.

Xavi made known over the weekend that he will be leaving the Catalan giants at the end of the current campaign.

His choice was made following Barcelona’s 5-3 loss to Villarreal at home, which dropped them 11 points behind leaders Girona in the La Liga standings.

The club has, however, also discussed the demands of leading Barcelona, which have increased during a run of patchy performance.

The 44-year-old’s insistence that he will finish the season on the bench gives Barcelona administrators more time to select their ideal successor.

Mikel Arteta of Arsenal has been mentioned in connection with the role, but it has since been reported that the Spaniard has no desire to leave the Emirates Stadium in the summer.

Journalist Christian Falk of BILD claims that President Joan Laporta is still interested in hiring Flick.

After a terribly disastrous tenure as manager of Germany, when he won just 12 of his 25 games and was fired shortly before his country hosted Euro 2024, the 58-year-old is currently unemployed.

Flick’s reputation is still good because of his work managing Bayern Munich from November 2019 to June 2021, during which time he managed just 87 games but won seven trophies.

This includes winning the Champions League in 2020, and it was presumably one of the draws when Laporta supposedly tried to name Flick as Barcelona’s manager before Xavi’s return to the team.

Falk reports that Laporta had a video call with Flick at the time, and it is anticipated that they will speak again in the upcoming weeks.

Although Flick served as Red Bull Salzburg’s assistant manager for a brief period in 2006, he has never held managerial position outside of his own Germany.

Barcelona is not going to make any snap decisions, especially now that their chances of making it into the Champions League the following season are in doubt and their financial situation has not improved much.
