Hansi Flick appoints Pini Zahavi as his agent.

German coach Hansi Flick is one of the strong candidates to replace Xavi Hernández as the FC Barcelona coach next season, and a move has been made that could bring him closer to joining the Blaugrana team. According to Roger Torello of Mundo Deportivo, Hansi Flick has changed his agent and has hired the services of renowned agent Pini Zahavi.

Pini Zahavi, who also represents Robert Lewandowski and has an excellent personal relationship with president Joan Laporta, brings vast experience, and Flick believes that his association can help him find the best possible project for his future as a coach. In Germany, it is also suggested that Flick has other interesting offers from the Premier League to continue his coaching career, but they point out that Barcelona has him on their list of potential candidates to replace Xavi.

Just a few days ago, the newspaper ‘Bild’ indicated that Bayern Munich would also welcome Flick’s return, as he led the Bavarian club to the sextuple in 2020, but the latest reports suggest that Thomas Tuchel will remain in charge.
