After separating from Ronald Koeman, FC Barcelona started looking for a new coach and it would be Xavi who would be in the sights. For several days, the Catalan club has been negotiating with Al-Sadd. The ball would also be in the camp of the Qatari team who will have to decide for the future of the Spaniard.

A few days ago, after the defeat against the Rayo Vallecano , FC Barcelona has decided to part ways with Ronald Koeman . Now the Catalan club are said to be looking for a new manager. And Barça would have set their sights on Xavi for the succession of the Dutch technician. For several days, negotiations have been in full swing between Al-Sadd and the Blaugrana formation. Rafa Yuste , vice-president of FC Barcelona , and Mateu Alemany , sports director, have also made the trip to Qatar to discuss the future of Xavi . The main party is said to have met with the president of Al-Sadd and would have received a favorable response to his departure. The ball would now be in the Qatari club's court and they will have to make a choice.

Three options available for Xavi's future

As SPORT explains, there would be three options available for the future of Xavi . Either Al-Sadd agrees to release the 2010 world champion for free, while the Spanish technician has a release clause of € 5 million in his contract binding him with the Qatari club until June 2023. Either the Qatar club agrees to lower this amount, which would greatly improve the affairs of FC Barcelona in view of the enormous economic crisis that the Catalan training is going through recently. Finally, as a last option, Barca would have to pay the full Xavi release clause to secure his services. Joan Laporta would only have to hope that the negotiations turn in the right direction for him and for the future of the former FC Barcelona midfielder.
