Xavi Hernandez meets again this Friday afternoon with the squad at the Ciutat Esportiva del Barca after granting three days of rest once the league runner-up was tied, but during this week he has already communicated four casualties personally to those affected. Òscar Mingueza, Riqui Puig, Samuel Umtiti and Martin Braithwaite, all with a current contract with Barça, you already know from the mouth of the Barça coach himself that they do not count for next season.
The decision of Xavi, who is complying with what he said at a press conference that he would go ahead to explain his arguments, did not in any way catch the four players off guard, who have hardly played since the Egarense took over the bench at the beginning of November. The reaction was positive in all of them and in some cases even gratitude for the football knowledge they Xavi He has instilled them in training day by day despite not having participated much. The talks were not concise and the coach tried to give advice, especially to the two youngsters from the academy but also to the two more experienced ones, about the possibilities they have to continue their football careers away from the Camp Nou in destinations that can best adapt to their football qualities.
Thus, Mingueza, Riqui, Umtiti Y Braithwaite They have a month and a half ahead of them before the preseason starts to find an outlet that meets their requirements. Braithwaitewho has drawn interest from English, Italian and German clubs after starting all six matches for Denmark at last summer’s European Championship and reaching the semi-finals, believes he can maintain himself at a relatively high club level.

There are other footballers who have not yet spoken directly with Xavi but who also know perfectly well that their future is not in the Camp Nou. It is the case of Net Murarawhich has already tried to go out in the winter market of 2021 and 2022 but without bringing an offer that would help compensate for the remaining amortization for the Barcaas well as Adama Traore Y Luuk de Jong. Both will see the end of the loan on June 30 by Wolverhampton Wanderers Y Seville, respectively. These two have helped when Xavi He has needed it, something that the coach has always recognized in public but they have not been indisputable in his plans.
