Xavi returns to Barcelona soon

Xavi returns to Barcelona soon

Xavi Hernández is living his last hours in Qatar. This noon, starting at 12 noon, the Spanish coach plans to meet with Al Sadd’s sheikh, Mohammed bin Al Thani, to finish closing his departure from the club, where the only point of disagreement is the release clause, since I know Xavi has a gentleman’s agreement with the sheikh that would forgive him the five million euros stipulated in the contract, it is also true that this verbal agreement was always framed in an orderly departure of the coach, and to do so in the middle of the season and without the President Joan Laporta has appeared in Doha, it is considered rude at best.
In any case, and pending the final meeting with the sheikh -they cannot meet before because Friday is a Muslim holiday and any meeting before noon is considered a serious offense because that time must be devoted to prayer-, the following Xavi’s steps are already marked.
In the event that he gets the free ‘release’ of the sheikh, Xavi and his agent, Fernando Solanas, will appear at the club’s offices to sign his contract termination. If, on the other hand, the sheikh does not give in and demands full payment or part of the clause, then the Barcelona delegation, made up of vice president Rafa Yuste and football director Mateu Alemany, will also go to the Al Sadd offices to make the payment effective or at least agree on the payment conditions.
Afterwards, the club is planning a small act in Doha to give official status to the signing of Xavi by FC Barcelona until June 30, 2024.
On Saturday, on a flight that leaves Doha at approximately 7.30 am, Xavi and the Blaugrana club delegation would return to Barcelona. The coach would watch his new team’s game against Celta in Vigo at home, so as not to interfere with the players or the work of Sergi Barjuan, with the intention of getting down to work as of Monday, with the doubt If the presentation will be on Sunday or Tuesday, since Monday has been definitively ruled out because the club has a series of events already organized and is aware that Xavi’s presentation would overshadow everything.
