Xavi will be announced as coach of Barcelona in Saturday

Before Saturday Xavi Hernández has to be announced as coach of FC Barcelona. This is the challenge faced by both the coach and the club, based on the steps that are being followed in Doha. While it is true that the absence of Joan Laporta is hindering the operation, the truth is that both Xavi and Barcelona are more than optimistic.
So much so, that from Xavi’s environment they assure us that they do not believe that it could take more than one or two days, taking into account that the deadline set to announce the signing of the legendary Blaugrana player would be Saturday.
The FC Barcelona delegation, made up of vice president Rafa Yuste and the director of football, Mateu Alemany, met this Wednesday night, after the match against Al Sadd, with a delegation from Al Sadd. Neither Xavi nor the sheikh participated in it. In fact, as AS has learned, it was a meeting where in no case was anything going to be decided, since the last word is the owner of the club. The objective of this summit, held in a luxurious hotel in Doha, was simply to convey to the emissaries of the Qatari club the content of Barcelona’s proposal for Al Sadd to release Xavi.
In any case, the agreement between Barça and Xavi is already fully closed, with a contract until June 30, 2024 and a salary much lower than that charged in Doha, but with many variables along the way.
The last obstacle is Sheikh Mohammed bin Al Thani, who this morning will learn about the Blaugrana proposal through his emissaries. Everything indicates that he will finally give up and release the coach, because he also gave Xavi his word that he would let him go in the event that the Blaugrana club came, but in any case Laporta’s absence is considered a lack of respect and tact in the Qatari club. And it is that we must not forget that the sheikh has to forgive 5 million euros and the truth is that with the absence of Laporta, the road to condonation is more winding. In Barcelona, the possibility of going to Doha to play a friendly or until Al Sadd participates in one of the next editions of the Gamper is considered as consideration.
In any event, if all goes well, the signing of Xavi by FC Barcelona will possibly be announced tomorrow, with the option of traveling between Saturday or Sunday to Barcelona, to take charge of the team on Monday and be presented that same day .
