Xavi Hernandez has left the door open for a return to Barcelona and any offers from other clubs.

Reports last week alleged that Xavi had begun ‘productive conversations’ with Barcelona president Joan Laporta about succeeding an under-fire Ronald Koeman as the club’s next manager.

Laporta has since played down those claims, although Xavi refuses to rule anything out at this stage.

In an interview with RTVE ahead of the Nations League final between Spain and France, the 41-year-old was quizzed on his future and on the possibility of taking over at Camp Nou.

“Any offer will be valued and then decided. I don’t know where my future will take me, but I’m open to any possibility,” he said.

Since hanging up his boots in 2019, Xavi has spent the last two years in charge of Al Sadd. He has overseen 53 wins, 12 draws, and 16 defeats in 81 matches. Six trophies have also come his way in Qatar, including the Qatar Stars League last season.
