Summary: Real Madrid - Barcelona 1:0 (Sport1)
Barcelona is still in euphoria after the great victory in the Clasico, which brought them within touching distance of the championship.
Behind the scenes, the club is already thinking about the future and one of the most important tasks at the moment is the extension of Xavi's contract.
About two weeks ago, President Juan Laforte said that "I'm already thinking about extending Xavi's contract, even if we don't win the championship. He claims that this is not the time, that he should win first, but he deserves it."
Now, when the championship is more or less guaranteed and also winning the cup seems quite realistic, the parties are expected to move towards signing.
The beloved coach has a contract for one more season after the end of the current one, and the intention, according to "Marka", is to extend his contract by at least one more season.
The problem will be the coach's salary: "Xavi signed a very low salary in Barcelona. Fair play issues will prevent him from being given a big raise. These problems have not yet been resolved, and also caused it to be impossible to register Gabi, and a number of other problems."
It's only a matter of time.
