Since his arrival on the Barcelona bench, Xavi Hernández has not ceased making crucial decisions for his mission. He started preparing the deployment of his framework much earlier than that. The coach’s viewpoint will be vital when making signing decisions, and it has previously proven to be decisive in halting operations that were about to begin.
Ramon Planes, the former technical secretary, resurrected the Van de Beek option a little over a month ago. When he was with Ajax, the Dutch midfielder, who is currently with Manchester United, was already in the Blaugrana’s orbit. The earliest talks with his agents took place at that time, yet the deal fell through and the player signed with the English instead.
On this occasion, the former executive contacted the footballer to inquire about his current situation in Manchester and whether or not he would be able to travel to Barça. Van de Beek was overjoyed at the prospect because, as he said, the situation at United was not ideal. The choice was then passed on to Xavi Hernández, who rejected the Dutchman’s probable inclusion, claiming that he does not require midfielders.
A very clear message for the Barcelona footballers in that position, in whom they have complete faith. Both in veterans such as Busquets and De Jong, as well as in younger players such as Nico, Gavi, and Riqui Puig
