The list includes, according to a report published by the newspaper “El Mundo Deportivo”, on Friday, the Brazilian midfielders Philip Coutinho And the Dutchman Frankie de Jong, and the French defenders Samuel Umtiti And the Brazilian Sergino Dest and the Spaniard Oscar Mingezza.
It seems that the list does not live up to the level that Xavi hopes for the players BarcelonaNor does it align with the plans he intends to implement in an effort to save the declining team.
And on Wednesday, Barcelona suffered a severe defeat with three clean goals against Bayern Munich The German, to be eliminated from the Champions League from the group stage, and move to compete in the European League.
With this defeat, the Catalan team has failed to cross the Champions League group stage for the first time since the 2000-2001 season.
Although Xavi seemed very frustrated after facing Bayern away, he considered the match against the European champions in 2020 a “turning point”, declaring the start of a new stage for his team.
“Bayern was clearly the best,” Xavi said after the harsh loss. “This is the harsh reality that we have to face. I told the players that this match was a turning point.”
But he continued: “Today is the beginning of a new era and we have to return Barcelona to the position it deserves, and it is not the European League.”
The Barcelona legend added: “I am sad because this is our reality. We will start from scratch and we have to bring Barcelona back to competition for Champions League. Now I feel responsible. Now we have to win the Europa League.”
