Xavi did receive an offer from Barcelona when Ernesto Valverde was sacked in January, but the offer was rejected.

"Yes, I received an offer from Barcelona when Eric Abidal and Oscar Grau were here but I didn't accept it, especially because it's too soon to coach Barcelona," he said, as per Sport.

"But let nobody doubt that it's my dream in the future to coach Barca."
