Xavi will demand five new players if he is to replace Ronald Koeman as the Barcelona head coach.
Xavi is one of the favorites to replace the Dutchman who is under intense pressure following a poor start to the season.
According to El Nacional, the former Barca man is interested in leading the team but will demand for players if he is to take over the job. On top of that list is a creative midfielder, so that he can play his preferred positional play football using a 4-3-3.
While Barcelona’s current midfield of Pedri, Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets, Nico, and Gavi is solid, it lacks a creative presence in the final third; the Spaniard is also in need of two fullbacks.
Next in the Spaniard’slist of demands is a winger specialized in dribbling, a profile severely lacking at the club. AAjax’sAntony is one of the options that the club is working on, but the deal is far from completion.
Finally, Xavi wants a center-forward with the club currently having an injury-prone Sergio Aguero and Luuk de Jong which is far from ideal for the club' the club is said to be in pursuit of Dortmund star Erling Halaand but the lack of funds would mean they are to abandon such a course.
