While FC Barcelona is forcing to attract Xavi, Al-Sadd would be upset because Joan Laporta did not come to Qatar to negotiate the arrival of the Spanish technician and would now claim 10M €.

Since the announcement of the dismissal of Ronald Koeman , FC Barcelona is in working order to complete the arrival of Xavi , currently on the bench of Al-Sadd . A prospect which delights the main interested party. “Now the two clubs have to negotiate, you know my position. I am very excited to be going home, hope this happens. It's to come back to Barça, to come back home, it's exciting of course ”, confided Xavi Hernandez at the microphone of Cadena SER. But while Al-Sadd is not totally opposed to the departure of his trainer, the behavior of Joan Laporta could change everything.

Annoyed that Laporta does not come, Al-Sadd claims 10M € to let go of Xavi

Indeed, the FC Barcelona delegation which flew to Qatar does not understand Joan Laporta . Rafa Yuste , vice-president, and Mateu Alemany , director of football, are the two leaders who are currently negotiating with Al-Sadd . And according to the Qatari journalist Mohammed Elkaabi , interviewed by El Chiringuito, the leaders of Al-Sadd would be particularly upset that it is not the president of the FC Barcelona who made the trip to negotiate in person the arrival of Xavi . In return, the Qatari leaders could thus demand the payment of the release clause included in the Spaniard's contract and estimated at 10M € … It remains to be seen whether this will be enough to convince Joan Laporta to make the trip.
