There have been many reports going around the Xavi Hernandez could be playing in his last season for Barcelona, so we thought we would look at a few players that may be able to replace him next season.
Koke - Atletico Madrid
The 23-year-old Spaniard has been Atletico’s prized asset for a couple of season’s now and helped guide his side to the Champions League final and League trophy last season. He is arguably the natural replacement for Xavi, but Barcelona will pay big money for him.
Ilkay Gundogan – Borussia Dortmund
He has had a host of injuries this season, but seems to have comeback stronger than ever. The German international has made it clear that he won’t be at Dortmund next season and that has put many clubs on high alert.
Paul Pogba – Juventus
Pogba has recently been praised for his incredible strength, pace, and shooting prowess. Lots of speculation has surrounded the French player as many top clubs have started to take notice of his skills.
Marco Verratti – Paris Saint-Germain
The Italian has been absolutely fantastic for PSG this season and has many clubs interested. He has the wonderful ability to keep possession and his great vision on the field helps him pick the near perfect pass almost every time.
Which player do you think will be Xavi’s perfect replacement?
