Xavi has announced his decision to leave Barcelona at the end of the season and speculation is already rife over who will be the next person to take over at Camp Nou. 

It’s been a tricky season for the Catalan club, with financial problems still blighting their progress and having to play home games away from the Camp Nou whilst its being renovated and the pressure seems to be too much for Xavi.

The rumours are running riot, with Mikel Arteta immediately linked with the position this summer, whilst Jurgen Klopp also features heavily in the betting market, after the German announced that he too will leave his currently club, Liverpool, at the season’s end.

Another manager who could emerge as one of the frontrunners to take over this summer is Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese legend was recently sacked at Roma and he could be persuaded to return to Barcelona, a club where he spent four years as assistant to both Bobby Robson and Louis van Gaal.

There are plenty of options for the Barcelona board to consider and we’ve got the latest odds right here if you think you know which top level manager will take the helm at Barcelona this summer.
