Planning ahead has not been a strong point of Barcelona in recent seasons, but gradually the Catalans seem to be preparing for the future.

Several young people have signed long-term contracts and next year Barcelona will move to the “Lluis Companys” stadium, as the “Camp Nou” will be renovated.

According to “Sport”, the club leaders are also thinking about the future coach.

One of the coaches being followed is Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta. As a player, the Spaniard had been part of Barça.

In addition, Arteta was Pep Guardiola’s assistant at Manchester City before taking over at Arsenal. Guardiola is very much a reference point in Barcelona.

Currently the message coming out of Barcelona is that it has total faith in Xavi Hernandez and has no intention of making any changes.

If Barcelona ends the season trophyless and well behind Real Madrid, that could change things.

Arteta’s impressive work has not gone unnoticed and in addition, he shares a good relationship with Barcelona directors Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff.

Otherwise, the 40-year-old has a valid contract with Arsenal until June 30, 2025.
