Barcelona manager, Xavi, has insisted that he is leaving the club at the end of the season, no matter what happens.

Barcelona manager Xavi has firmly stated his intention to leave the club at the end of the season, emphasizing that not even a Champions League success would change his decision.

Despite the Blaugrana's recent 4-2 aggregate victory over Napoli, securing their place in the Champions League quarter-finals, Xavi remains committed to his departure from Camp Nou.

The victory kept Barcelona on course to win a first UCL trophy since 2015, and Xavi was asked after the game if a Champions League trophy could make him change his mind.

“You keep on asking me if I will stay if we win the Champions League, no, I will not,” he told reporters.

“My future will not change. My response will not change,I will leave at the end of the season.

“I will enjoy the Champions League next season, yes, but as a fan.”
