Xavi, Barcelona’s manager, and a former teammate has shockingly told Gerard Pique that he is no longer a part of his plans and may leave the Nou Camp.

The Spanish international, Gerard Pique was advised two weeks ago that he had no future at the club owing to unethical behavior off the field and his declining physical condition.

Pique’s high-profile breakup with Colombian singer Shakira was revealed only days before Xavi’s shocking disclosure.

Xavi’s main beef with Pique is his multiple business interests off the field, and it’s thought that Barca owes him over €40 million (£34.3 million) in postponed payments.

Xavi is said to have spoken to his former teammate directly and stated that Pique would not be a part of his future plans.

While Xavi has no doubts about Pique’s ability to perform at the greatest level, it is said that he is concerned about his capacity to cope with the busy pace of modern football.

Pique is expected to leave the club in a dignified manner this summer, with the club even forgiving some of the £34.3 million owed to him, as great figure Carles Puyol did when he left in 2014.

Puyol, like his old defensive partner, left the Catalan giants in 2014 after 15 years with the first squad with two years left on his contract due to his body’s inability to manage the rigors of professional football.

Pique, on the other hand, is prepared to fight the club’s wish for him to go and has allegedly promised to work harder, return to his best form, and cut back on some of his off-field obligations.

Mateu Alemany, the club’s sporting director, must now speak with Pique about the potential of him terminating his contract or seeking a new club.

Xavi, who played 312 games with Pique, wants to create his squad on a defense he can trust, and that is something Pique, according to the Barcelona star, cannot provide.

Pique has also been involved in a battle over the leadership of the Spanish FA in recent years and has been fined over £8,000 for assaulting police after getting a parking ticket.

Pique co-founded and serves as president of Kosmos Holding, a sport and media investment holding company he co-founded with four other partners, including Hiroshi Mikitani, the creator of Barca’s sponsor Rakuten.

Despite Xavi’s remarks, Pique is still under contract until 2024.
