He will arrive in Barcelona on Thursday, but reports suggest Xavi could leave interim manager Sergi Barjuan on Saturday’s away game against Celta Vigo, giving him two weeks to prepare for his first match against Espanyol at home. Xavi won 62 of 90 matches at Al Sadd and played 767 during his previous 17 years at FC Barcelona winning the club.
