Xavi, 40, recently quashed rumours that he was preparing to move back to Barcelona. According to Mundo Deportivo's Francesc Aguilar, Barcelona Legend Xavi has agreed to join Camp Nou next season to replace Quique Setien.
Quique Setien has come under a lot of criticism after failing to secure the necessary points to maintain his previously held lead over arch-rivals Real Madrid

"A few days ago, I tested positive in the last Covid19 test," Xavi said on Twitter.
"Fortunately, I'm feeling ok, but I will be isolated until I am given the all clear. When the health services allow it, I will be very eager to return to my daily routine and to work."
