    Yeah, hopefully he'll continue up until 2016 when his contract expires.

    Don't know really about his successor. We won't have Xavi no.2 that's for sure and Barca style will change somewhat once he's gone. Maybe Tata changing Barca to more faster and direct team is already marking a slow exit of "Xavi era".

    Thiago would've been THE perfect replacement. But he is history now.

    Busquets should fill in Xavi's role imo

    No such thing as a Xavi successor. You cannot replace him.

    When he retires you'll just have to adjust to a different way of playing and buying a midfielder that suits that role best.

    Plenty of them about. But no one can replace Xavi.

    Like others said, no new Xavi. No new Iniesta. Just players with a - sometimes just slightly - different profile. I can't really choose between Oliver Torres and Sergi Samper, love them both Chose Torres anyway, think he is just a bit more developed atm. Still a long way to go for both, though.


    Salid y disfrutad.

    He is nowhere on the passing level of Xavi, nor can he control a game like Xavi. Let alone his technique which also comes nowhere near that of Xavi

    As most of you are saying, Xavi is irreplaceable. But there are players who have a similar skillset and given time to adjust to the Barcelona way could become masters of the midfield... ATM Gundogan would be the best fit because of his vision, passing range, tenacity, ability to dribble out of tight situations and overall ability to control a match. Samper & Torres have the potential but are behind Gundogan for the time being.
