Xavi will meet Laporta’s representative in Doha

Xavi will meet Laporta’s representative in Doha

The best possible scenario to accelerate the negotiations and close an agreement as soon as possible to release Xavi Hernández from Al Sadd was Joan Laporta’s visit to Doha to meet personally with the Sheikh, Mohammed bin Hamad, as a gesture of respect and cordiality. However, the president has finally ruled out traveling to Qatar, although it will not be an “insurmountable obstacle” either, they assure us from Xavi’s surroundings, underlining that “everything will be fine”, with or without Laporta in the final negotiations.
This same morning first thing in the morning, and without having barely slept, since the team landed at the edge of four in the morning in Kiev, a delegation from FC Barcelona formed by the sports vice president, Rafa Yuste, and the football director, Mateu Alemany was catching a flight to Doha.
Both will have as a priority mission to meet with the owner of Al Sadd to officially communicate the interest of the club in signing his coach and also personally thank the sheikh’s gesture of freeing the player from paying the release clause, much higher than one million euros.
Nor can it be ruled out that Barcelona and Al Sadd reach a compensatory agreement such as holding a friendly in Doha in the next two years, before the World Cup in Qatar.
After having the OK from the sheikh, it will be time for Yuste and Alemany to meet with Xavi to finish outlining the new contract, which will link him with Barcelona until June 30, 2024, also agreeing to receive a much lower salary than he receives. currently in the Qatari club, but with the possibility of high variables as compensation. The biggest point of disagreement today is the number of people who will accompany Xavi on his staff. In any case, it is a divergence considered acceptable between both parties, ensuring that there will be a satisfactory and imminent resolution.
