Xavi Targets Premier League Move

Former Barcelona manager, Xavi, is reportedly considering a move to the Premier League after his recent dismissal from the Catalan club.

Following his sacking last month after a challenging tenure, Xavi was seen in public for the first time on Saturday.

According to the Spanish news outlet Sport, the Barcelona legend is now contemplating a managerial role in England, mirroring the path of his former coach, Pep Guardiola, who is the current manager of Premier League champions Manchester City.

Although Xavi plans to spend the next few months with his family, he is reportedly interested in an “interesting” project in the Premier League.

However, it remains unclear which clubs he is targeting.

But Xavi was predicted to make a swift return to management, and was linked with Chelsea after they parted ways with Mauricio Pochettino.

Elsewhere, Barcelona announced the appointment of former Bayern Munich and Germany coach Hansi Flick as the club's new manager.

Flick will undertake a two-year contract, and is only the third German to take charge of the Catalonian outfit.

Manchester United approached Xavi about becoming the club's new manager, according to sensational reports in Spain.

This comes amid the uncertainty surrounding the future of United boss Erik ten Hag.

Likewise, AC Milan and the South Korean national team also made contact with Xavi.
