WHAT'S BUZZIN

Mikel Arteta to Barca, will it happen?

Barcelona are losing their patience in Xavi Hernandez after dropping to the UEFA Europa League despite backing him with new signings.

Barcelona are monitoring Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta as the potential replacement for Xavi Hernandez who also happens to be the Barcelona Legend.

Joan Laporta played down the Xavi exit rumours at some point a few games into the 2022/23 season but it is now evident that the Barcelona hierarchy are starting to lose their faith in the Spanish manager.

Arteta is on top of the Barca wish list along with some other unnamed managers also being lined up in case Xavi is sacked any time from now.

Arteta has proved himself at Arsenal this season after winning several games with the Gunners hence Arsenal are the Premier League leaders at the moment with 31 points in 12 matches played.

As it stands, it is unlikely that Arteta will quit Arsenal midseason especially now that he is hopeful Arsenal might clinch the EPL if they will continue to play well as they are doing at the moment.

Xavi Hernandez is also not ready to quit his job as he believes in patience and that's what he wants both the Barca fans and board to have at the moment.

Barca backed Xavi in the transfer window with almost every player that he wanted despite Laporta claiming that the club was broke.

Arteta was also backed by Arsenal and he has in return provided the results that Arsenal have been dreaming of in a very long time since Arsene Wenger's departure from the club.
