According to Xavi, “it is done,” adding that it now depends on the conversations between Barcelona and Al-Sadd.
Xavi, a Barcelona legend, is keen to return to the club as their new manager, following the sacking of Ronald Koeman last week.
Speaking on the development, Xavi said at his post-match press conference following Al-Sadd’s 3-3 draw against Al-Duhail in the Qatar Stars League on Wednesday, “I’ve been talking to Barca for days, it’s done.
“But now it depends on the conversations between clubs, they need to reach an agreement. Barca is coming to talk, we are all eager and excited. We’ll see if it ends up being done.
“I really want to go home. I hope it happens. I have a contract and now the clubs have to negotiate. They already know my position.”
