In FC Barcelona everything seems to be well defined with respect to the successor of Ronald Koeman. Xavi Hernández would have everything arranged to join the club next week once his involvement with Al-Sadd ends. However, from Qatar they put a stop to the claims of ‘culés’, which puts the alert in the negotiations for their arrival.
Xavi was the main candidate since Koeman’s removal was confirmed. Despite the doubts that there were at some point about Joan Laporta, the truth is that one of the best midfielders of the century for the club will now put on the coach’s outfit when he takes over on the Catalan bench. But, they still must not rush from the Camp Nou.
It is that in Al-Sadd they want to put a stop to everything that has been commented on the imminent arrival of Xavi Hernández in Barcelona. For this reason, they have published a statement on their social networks where they not only affirm that the Spanish coach is focused on the team, but also recalls that he has a current contract with the club until 2023.
«In response to what is circulating recently, Al-Sadd’s management reaffirms that Xavi has a two-year contract with the club and is fully focused on the team’s next matches, to maintain our leadership at the top of the league and defend the title “, is the statement published on the official Twitter account of the Qatari club.
Is Xavi’s arrival in Barcelona at risk?
According to the newspaper Sport, this statement arises from the framework of the negotiations between the parties. Between Xavi and Barcelona there is already a principle of agreement and what remains is to finish the stage with Al-Sadd in the best way. In this sense, the Spanish coach would end his participation with the Qataris after his next two games (Al-Ahli and Al-Duhail) before the international break. (Bolavip)
