La Liga champions Barcelona have ruled out a move for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi.
The Catalans are looking for a new manager as Xavi has announced his decision to leave the club at the end of the season.
Though Xavi has insisted he would not change his mind, Barcelona president Joan Laporta has stated clearly that he wants the 44-year-old to continue leading the team after this current campaign.
‘I’ve made it clear to him that I would like him to stay, but I understand the pressure he feels,’ Laporta told Mundo Deportivo.
‘I asked if there was a chance he might change his mind, but I could see the pressure on his face. I told him to relax and not feel pressured. He has said he will leave at the end of the season as planned, but we’ll see. Let’s not stress about it now because things are going well.’
Xavi has decided to leave Barcelona.
The publication claims that Luis Enrique, Hansi Flick and Rafa Marquez are now on Barcelona’s short list of potential Xavi replacements.

The leadership at Barcelona is reportedly opposed to Arteta’s appointment because of his inexperience and the fact that he still has a contract with Arsenal till 2025.
Due to De Zerbi’s lack of experience at elite teams and the €15 million (£12.8 million) release clause in his Brighton contract, Barcelona are also avoiding a move for him.

It shows how difficult…
