Barcelona directors in Qatar to discuss Xavi move

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 1,572

Information about Barcelona's sudden interest in Xavi as a replacement for Ernesto Valverde continues to be revealed after the Supercup disaster. The club's directors are still in Qatar.

Although Al-Sadd, the club who he has played for and managed in the last few years, have declared that he is not going anywhere, Barcelona continue to consider what to do with Ernesto Valverde and insist on Xavi.

The club's sporting director, Eric Abidal, and CEO, Óscar Grau, haven't come back to Barcelona, as according to 'RAC1', they are still in Doha to attend the match between Al-Sadd and Al-Rayyan. The aim is to convince Xavi and the Qatari club. The aforementioned source is the one that revealed the first meeting between Xavi and Barca after the Supercup disappointment.

The scenario that has been raised so far is that Barca want him this season or next season. The first option has been gaining strength and form in the last few hours. Xavi in and Valverde out.

Miguel Rico, assistant director at 'Mundo Deportivo' and respected journalist about Barcelona news, signaled on Saturday on 'Cadena COPE's' 'Tiempo de Juego' that Barcelona have offered Xavi the chance to become manager next week. They play at home to Granada next Sunday.

Xavi's answer and Al-Sadd's resistance when it comes to losing him are questions that would remain unsolved in an equation in which, at the moment, the only unknown is that Barcelona no longer see Valverde as the right man as manager. If he doesn't leave now, unless it comes as a surprise, he would not complete the other optional season he signed when he signed his renewal.
