As FC Barcelona reportedly work behind the scenes to make Xavi Hernandez's comeback a reality as part of Ronald Koeman's succession, Barca would be forced to meet two specific conditions of Al-Sadd, Xavi's current employer.
The FC Barcelona is going through a particularly complicated sporting past. Evidenced by the club's record in La Liga since the start of the season with only four successes in ten outings. As for the Champions League, Barça lost in the first two days of their group stage before correcting the situation against Dynamo Kiev last October 20 (1-0) thanks to a goal from the eternal Gerard Pique . The last setback recorded against Rayo Vallecano Wednesday night (1-0) was the straw that broke the camel's back of the Joan Laporta administration in what concerns Ronald Koeman who has had his day at FC Barcelona . Indeed, in the wake of this defeat, the president of FC Barcelona and his advisers have decided to fire the Dutch technician whose contract expires next June. To ensure the interim, FC Barcelona chose Sergi Barjuan , who until now was only Barca's reserve manager, as mentioned in FC Barcelona's official statement on Thursday. “FC Barcelona informs that Sergi Barjuan, current coach of Barça B, will temporarily take over the management of the first team. The interim in the bench of the first team will end as soon as the Club will have completed the recruitment of a new coach, following the dismissal of Ronald Koeman ”. A temporary worker while waiting… Xavi Hernandez ?

However, according to Esport3, there have not yet been any concrete discussions between FC Barcelona and Al – Sadd in order to get closer to the appointment of the former glory of Barça on the bench of the club culé. The contract of Xavi within the Qatari team will not expire until December 2022. Despite everything, Al – Sadd would not ask for financial compensation, but simply an agreement with the < strong> FC Barcelona for a friendly tribute to take place. This would be one of the two conditions, and the second, the more important, would be as it has been discussed in recent hours that Xavi Hernandez honors his coaching position. until November 3. Namely the date that will oppose its players from Al-Sadd to Al-Duhail. On the side of FC Barcelona, we would be right now and already ready to grant him the fact of coming with his own technical staff who would include his brother Oscar and Sergio Alegre as assistants. Ivan Torres would be the physical trainer and a team of recruiters would be made available to Xavi Hernandez .
