My point being that he isnt going to get any younger but is still young enough to put on the market and bring some more funds back to the club. It also makes sense with Fab and Tiago waiting in the wings.
I doubt it, though it won't shock me. I think Xavi will play fewer games this year, he played injured quite a bit last year...so I believe Pep will keep him fresh and rest him against really crappy opponents - and also sub him out early. They will apply similar strategy with Iniesta too, imho. Barca started to look very tired in Febuary and March of last year before gettin' their legs back.
CB is the only concern for me - where Puyol is injured, and Barca relies on Pique way too much.
