Any arrival of a new coach to a team implies the presence of a new number of requests that modify the squad. After all, the coach who arrives at his new destination finds a squad designed by another coaching staff and it is logical that he sees missing players or other profiles that are left over. And this is what has happened with Xavi Hernández since he arrived at the Barcelona Football Club.

The baggage of the former Al-Sadd coach so far is a victory in LaLiga and a bland draw in the Champions League, but the team looks different. The game of the culé team has improved, the sensations of many young talents begin to be more interesting and it is clear which are the players who will not have minutes and will come out this next winter market.

- Philippe Coutinho: the attacking midfielder has no place behind footballers like Pedri, Gavi, Frenkie de Jong or Nico González, and what Xavi Hernández asks for a winger are not the qualities that the Brazilian shows. A practically guaranteed exit at FC Barcelona.

-Riqui Puig: the Catalan midfielder is another of those who does not have the rhythm to be an important part of the Blaugrana team and his departure, even if it is on loan, is guaranteed.

- Luuk de Jong: the Dutchman is precisely what this Barça needs, a striker. But he needs one of level, that he can associate and that he can score goals. And the former Sevilla FC player is the opposite, so his stay at the Camp Nou will be shortened as much as possible.
