The team entrusted with the professional part of the Barcelona management was on the way to significant changes, but today (Wednesday) a particularly surprising U-turn led to the change being only partial. It was recently reported that the professional manager Matteo Almani chose to move to a new and ambitious project of Unai Emery, but according to reports in Spain, he withdrew and decided to stay in Barcelona for next season as well.
Barcelona already published an official announcement about Elmani’s departure “in favor of a new sports project”, but now, as mentioned, there has been a twist in the plot and he will remain in his position, unlike the sports director Jordi Cruyff who left. It was reported in Spain that the decision was made after Almani’s visit to Birmingham, and that there is no connection to the departure of ex-Maccabi Tel Aviv. The one who is expected to replace Cruyff is another former player of the club, the Portuguese Deco, who will work alongside Alemany for next season.

And in the meantime, is Yushua Kimich on his way to Barcelona? According to reports in the German “Bild”, “Kimisch will not continue next season in his current position”, since coach Thomas Tuchel does not believe that he has the defensive abilities to play the role of a rear midfielder (6) and prefers him as a more attacking midfielder (8). It is reported that Tochel would like to sign West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.
However, in “Mundo Deportivo” it is reported that “Kimish wants to leave Bayern, and is linked to a move to Barcelona”. According to the reports, “Kimish is looking for a new challenge and wants to leave Bayern, and is very interested in playing in Barcelona.” As you remember, Bayern went through a very stormy season, with the sudden dismissal of Julian Nagelsmann, when Kimmich even criticized the management for the conduct.
In “Mundo Deportivo” they claim that Xavi appreciates his abilities, the management appreciates his character, and he should also be cheaper than another Barcelona candidate, Martin Zubimendi from Real Sociedad, who demands 60 million euros for him.
