Friday night provided early insights into the future of newly appointed Barcelona boss Xavi Hernández in the future of those currently under his supervision in Catalonia.
In recent weeks, the transfer theme has certainly made headlines at the Nou Camp.
This is because the aforementioned Xavi is piecing together a team that can lead Barcelona away from the depths of La Liga midfield and return to the club’s proper position at the top of Spanish and European football.
In turn, many names are thought to be people who may arrive in the Catalan capital in January. It is understood that the onslaught of Manchester City forward Ferran Torres is underway:

But what about those who might make way for the arrival of the Nou Camp?
Well, as mentioned above, Friday night provides insight into this. And this news, if accurate, will undoubtedly shock Barcelona’s persuaders.
According to Spanish journalist Jordi Grau in an interview with OnzeTV3, in the first few weeks of Xavi’s return to Catalonia, only three players were deemed “untouchable”.
The trio in question? La Masia graduated from Ansu Fati, Gavi and Nico.
Therefore, as Harvey prepares to show his little-known ruthless streak at the club, every remaining member of the Barcelona team will be required to prove their worth in the coming months.
