Xavi’s seven immovables at Barcelona that form the backbone of the team

When Xavi took charge of Barcelona during the 2021/22 season, it’s safe to say that the squad was far from ideal.

However, a summer of lavish spending has meant the Spanish boss has had a lot more tools to work with in order to fulfil the club’s ultimate dream of returning to the top again.

Amidst the host of superstars the 42-year-old can select from, it has been revealed that he is unlikely to veer away from a set spine he has now built at the Spotify Camp Nou.

As per a report by SPORT, Xavi’s ‘immovables’ at Barça consist of the likes of Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Ronald Araujo, Jules Kounde, Pedri, Gavi, Ousmane Dembele and Robert Lewandowski.

One of the former legendary midfielder’s prime goals was to ensure that ter Stegen finds his best form yet again and so far, this season, his redemption arc is fully in motion, conceding a mere goal in six La Liga matches.

As for Araujo, he has not played in only one game this term, while Kounde has only been benched once, since his registration mid-campaign

Unsurprisingly, Pedri has played the second most minutes out of any outfield player this season at Barcelona (604), which speaks volumes of his importance to the side.

In a similar vein, Gavi was only rested in the side’s 5-1 battering of Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League.

Lewandowski, who is currently the leading goalscorer in the league with eight goals, has the most minutes out of any outfield player at the club (629), while the revitalized Dembele has missed just one match in all competitions up until this point.

With an enviable core at his disposal, Xavi has quality and stability in abundance within his ranks, which makes him best placed to lead Barcelona’s rise to the summit.
