Negotiations in Doha are advancing and the distances between Barcelona and Al Sadd due to the separation of Xavi Hernández are shortened. From Spain a principle of agreement between the parties is reported and it is assumed that the former Barça captain will be the successor to Ronal Koeman. The announcement is imminent.
Rafael Yuste and Mateu Alemany continue their negotiations with Al Sadd in search of the release of their contract with Xavi Hernández without having to pay the termination clause. The coach himself has also held meetings with the sheikhs in search of an agreement to return to the Camp Nou as coach.
As reported by Double Yellow, there is a principle of agreement between Barcelona and Al Sadd for the termination of Xavi Hernández’s contract. The coach will be released from his contract with the Qatari club and will assume command of the Barça team, ending the interim term of Sergi Barjuan and taking the position left by Koeman.
The source indicates that the Arab club will agree to release Xavi if Barcelona agrees to play a pre-season friendly match in the city of Doha. This was one of the possibilities that were handled from the beginning of the conversations to define the future of the ex-captain culé.
Barcelona will do everything possible to have its new coach for this Friday, November 5, without having to pay the clause. However, the Catalans will not accept a refusal from the Middle East club and are prepared to put the 5 million euros of the DT’s termination clause. (Bolavip)
