Not really. Xavi is hesitant as he thinks it may be too soon to take over as big a job as Barca and Koeman's position obviously depends on results and performances.

Koeman is doing fine and doesnt deserve a sack. Xavi needs a revamp and fresh start, which could be challenging due to lack of money and all that

There's one big question hovering over the future of Barca and it's not who's coach

It's what's going to happen with Messi

will they renew him with as much money? Can they possibly afford that?

Seeing that Laporta, and probably all the other candidates, ran ona platform of 'keep Messi at all costs', that seems to be the orthodoxy, but is that orthodoxy in line with reality?
Would Messi agree to take a substantial pay cut?

Or wouldn't it be time to renovate the squad, which seems difficult in the stranglehold of Messi's wages?
So shouldn't getting rid of that financial stranglehold be a chance the club should grip with both hands?

But then, can they be prepared for the void he will be leaving on the pitch and in the imagination?

I'd rather sell Griezmann and Coutinho to make some space than sell Messi.

Selling Messi would have made sense last summer, but allowing him to leave for free? Another huge blunder on Fartomeu's part.

Yep the chance for Messi to leave is gone. I  hope they find an agreement to stretch out  his salary payments over more years or something to keep the budget intact. Messi's first choice is staying in Spain for sure

Sell Griezmann and Coutinho first (terrible and unreliable players to build the team on). Busquets aswell

Tbh i forgot coutinho is even still w us. Thats how irrelevant he is and we play miles better without antoine.

Agreed...Selling players like Griezmann, Coutinho, Busquets, Umtiti, Braithwaite, Pjanic should be the top priority. I think Laporta will be able to manage Messi with pay cut. He should accept that if the right project is presented.

#1. Is there any taker for Coutinho and Griezmann for a decent price?

#2. The wage & benefits of Messi is just humongous and would free up a sizable fund for squad rebuilding.

If they do retain Messi, it's going to be for multiple years. The club hierarchy has to do the math if the revenue generated by Messi is any longer sustainable considering his cost.
